Read from the Book

From I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916There couldn't be a shark in the creek. That was crazy.Chet tried to laugh, but T.J. was still standing there with that terrified look on his face. And now Dewey was rushing through the water towards the grass."Get out of the water!" he yelled.Because that black triangle was coming right at them. Chet swam as fast as he could, but T.J. just stood there, frozen."T.J.!" Chet shouted. "Hurry!"But it was too late.The shark was heading right for T.J.T.J. screamed.There was a huge splash.And then he was gone.
