Sarah is nervous about starting a new school and shows it by trying to stay in bed and saying she’s too sick to go to school. The ending is a surprise when you find out that Sarah is the new teacher, and she is nervous about whether or not her class will like her and how she’ll fit in to her new school. (McGraw-Hill Treasures, 2009)
