My Homework Ate My Homework

by Patrick Jennings

Eleven-year-old Zaritza dreams of being a star and is excited when she learns about a play coming to her school, but she can't try out unless her math homework is caught up. A baby sister and a wild ferret add to the chaos! When Zaritza is assigned to care for her class ferret, Bandito, over winter break, he escapes and eats her other assignments, leaving her with an unbelievable excuse.
