Realistic (fiction), 729 words, Level Q (Grade 3)

Emily tells a story from the point of view of a young girl, Mary. She and her mother are on their way to Canada so Mary can meet Harry, her mother's "significant other." Mary already has strong feelings against Harry because he has taken her mother away every weekend, and Mary misses their special time together. She expects Harry to be nothing like her dad, and she's prepared to act nicely for her mother but knows she will not like much about the day. Little does she know that a special surprise awaits her--Harry's daughter, Emily. Illustrations support the text.
