“It’s gone,” Jose’s yell interrupted Kendall’s thoughts. “My assignment isn’t in my backpack where I left it.”
Everyone turned to look at Jose Gomez.
Jose frantically searched through his backpack again. Then he looked up with an angry look on his face.
“I’ll bet Peter took it!” Everyone turned to look at Peter Markham. Peter was known as the class bully.
“You can’t just accuse someone,” Mrs. Allen, the teacher said. “Why do you think Peter took it?”
“He had the chance to,” Jose said. “I had to sit next to him on the bus. I didn’t want to, but when I got on the bus, it was the only seat open.”
“But I didn’t touch your stupid homework,” Peter said angrily.
Who is telling the truth? And how can Kendall prove it?
