The Cheat, by Sheridan Jones: a story in installments. Chapter 1: The Test

It all started on a Monday morning.Me and the other sixth graders were taking a test. Everyone always gets the tests wrong. Sometimes (if we're lucky) we got five or ten right. The only one who ever got one hundred or a little less was my best friend Marvin.

Everyone was working hard but me. Nope, I just sat there thinking. Then I had an idea!

I leaned back in my chair...a little bit farther...there! I could see Marvin's paper. Hmm, let's see...55, 102, triangle, true, true, true and false. There, done! Now I don't have to worry about getting bad grades and my parents yelling at me because I got bad grades!

Tune in soon for Chapter 2: Telling Lies.
