An Excerpt from The 25th Hour (Book One in The Adventures of Mackenzie Mortimer):
Mackenzie watched the school parking lot disappear in the rear window of the yellow school bus. “You know what this means, Marlene?”
Marlene shot him a quizzical look. “What?”
Mackenzie grinned. “An extra day to finish our English term paper. Field trips are awesome.” He opened his brown bag. “Ham and cheese. What’d you get?”
Marlene peered inside hers. “PB and J.”
“Trade you halves.” He handed her half of his sandwich and she gave him half of hers. Mackenzie eyed her bag. “Chocolate chip cookies? You know, those are really unhealthy for you.” He pulled an apple from his bag. “Since you’re my BFF, I should let you have my apple.”
Marlene grinned. “I suppose you’ll be happy to dispose of these unhealthy cookies for me?”
Mackenzie flashed a boyish smile. “It’s the least I could do.”
