In this excerpt, Brady and his friends don’t demonstrate good judgment when they choose not to warn Mrs. DiAngelo early that morning. Feeling guilty, Brady becomes frustrated and anxious about having to search the small creeks rather than being with the adults. After following the instincts of his dog, Brady finds Benjamin unconscious. Despite his panic, Brady decides to focus his efforts on performing CPR on Benjamin. (Pearson Reading Street, 2010)
