It's Almost Friday by Irma Jacobs Tirro
Eleven year old Jodi dreads Friday, Annual Pet Day at school. She’s never had a pet and her classmates laugh and mock her.
“Are you mean?”
“Do you smell?”
Jodi is embarrassed to tell them her mother is a snob who thinks animals are nasty and that it’s not proper to have one.
An only child, Jodi is lonely, and sometimes wonders if her mother loves her.
It’s almost Friday, and Jodi is determined to find a pet to take this year. Where she looks and what she finds startles everyone.
