Under the train tracks

Caitlin Smith Illustrated by Dub Leffler

When Susie is forced to choose between her best mate, Isaac, and the gang at The Fort, she tells her friend a little lie—and he finds out. Why can’t Isaac just get over it?

 “What you doing here?”
Gary asked when they got closer.
“You told us to come,
remember?” said Susie.
“Not him.” Gary pointed to Isaac.
“I didn’t say that Whitie could come!”
