Justin Case
School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters
By Rachel VailIllustrated by Matthew Cordell
September 1, Tuesday 
Okay, yes. I’m worried.Already.I can’t help it.
September 2, Wednesday 
Seven days to go until the start of third grade. I can’t sleep.I’m not getting onto a good schedule. I’m still on a summer schedule. But worse.Everybody else is asleep. Mom, Dad, Elizabeth — they’re allsnoring, and I’m still up. Listening. To the silence.It’s very loud, the silence in my room. I’m flopping aroundmy bed, tangling in my blankets. My pajamas are starting toitch. My stuffed snake, Snakey, is giving me an evil look, like hemight come to life and bite me.I know that is not possible and I definitely don’t believe instuff like that anymore.
 Just in case, though, I’m now sitting up, with my heart pounding, throwing blankets on top of Snakey. It’s not working.I know he’s still in there, under my blankets, with his  venomous stuffed teeth and glassy eyes.I’m more awake than ever.If I don’t get enough sleep, I am a disaster.Sometimes I am a disaster anyway.And I don’t just mean at ball sports.
September 3, Thursday 
 The class lists came — finally!My new teacher is named Ms. Burns. I don’t think that sounds too good. Burns? She is brand- new to the school. I haveno idea if she will be nice or mean, old or young, pretty or anevil witch.Of course I don’t believe in evil witches.At least, during the day I don’t.My little sister, Elizabeth, is starting kindergarten. She got Ms. Amara, my old kindergarten teacher, the best teacher in theentire world.If I could have Ms. Amara again, everything would be fine.
