Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

A wacky girl named Clementine lives a life of weirdness. It all starts off on Monday. Clementine went to the art room and sat next to Margaret. Margaret was the bossy type. Suddenly Margaret gets glue in her hair and runs to the bathroom with a pair of scissors.

Clementine begins to wonder where Margaret was and what she was doing. So she ran there and then asked,"Margaret, what happened?" Margaret’s face was red with tears and ALL OF HER HAIR WAS CUT OFF! “My Mom has permanent markers in her special drawer!" Clementine said. "I guess I have no choice.”

Will Clementine color Margaret’s head or will she be plain mad at her? Read and see!
