The night was clear, and the full moon seemed to smile down on the new home of the
Carson family who had just moved into the neighborhood. On the back porch, little Sarah cried
quietly because her new pet puppy refused to sleep in Sarah’s pretty pink room. Sara wondered
how she could convince the puppy to change its mind. Sarah’s brother, Nicholas, was in the

in town. He thought about the boy across the street—maybe he’d ask the boy to play soccer
tomorrow. How lucky they all felt that day.
