Justine McKeen, Eat Your Beets

De
64 pages
Meet Justine McKeen, the Queen of Green. She talks a little too much, bosses a little too much and tells the truth, just not all at once. She's trying to save the planet, one person at a time, and when she decides to get something done, it's a lot of fun. In Justine McKeen, Eat Your Beets, the fourth book in the Justine McKeen series, Justine has another brilliant idea to help the planet. When she learns a stray cat and her kittens are living off the food in their school Dumpster, Justine sets out to reduce waste and help save animals in need. Her friends are supportive, but convincing grumpy Mr. Raymond, the cafeteria's manager, to help them put Justine's plan in action is another matter altogether.

Chapter One
“The world’s greatest kicker is about to put a soccer ball past the world’s worst goalie!” Safdar said. “More like the world’s worst shot doesn’t have a chance against the world’s best goalie!” Michael said. It was Saturday morning. Safdar and Michael were on the playground near their school. Justine McKeen sat at the bottom of the slide, watching ants in the sand. She looked up. “If you guys were that good, you would actually have a net, instead of chalk marks on the school wall.”

She pointed at the far end of the playground.A crowd was watching a soccer game, cheering at the players. “Of course,” Justine said, “if you guys were that good, you would be on one of those teams over there. You would have real nets. Just saying.” “I don’t like practices,” Safdar said. “There’s no freedom for a player like me.” “I just want to have fun,” Michael said. “I don’t like rules.” “You mean rules like no kicking soccer balls against the school wall?” Justine asked. “That rule?” “It’s Saturday,” Michael said. “What could go wrong?” Safdar kicked the soccer ball as hard as he could. It shot over Michael’s head. It sailed past the chalk marks on the school wall that marked the goal.It continued over the roof of the school. “World’s greatest?” Michael asked. “I’m about power, not accuracy,” Safdar said.

Justine waited for the sound of breaking glass from the wing of the school with classrooms. Instead, she heard a clang. The ball had hit the Dumpster outside the door of the school cafeteria. “See?” Safdar said. “No worries.” “Who did that?” asked a loud, angry voice. Michael, Safdar and Justine recognized the voice. It belonged to Jimmy Blatzo. Nobody at school ever wanted to make Jimmy Blatzo mad. He was big and looked very mean. “Um, I have to go,” Michael said. “Homework.” “I have to go too.” Safdar looked at Justine.“No excuse. Just scared. And smart. Aren’t you going to run too?” Safdar and Michael ran as fast as they could. They were much better runners than they were soccer players. They made it around the corner and out of sight in seconds. Justine stayed at the bottom of the slide.

Jimmy Blatzo came around the corner, holding the soccer ball. “Hey, Blatzo,” she said. “Do you want to watch some ants with me?” “I told you, don’t call me Blatzo.” “Right,” she said. “Did the ball hit the Dumpster? Or your head? I couldn’t tell by the sound of the clang.” “Very funny,” he growled. Then something moved inside his shirt, and a little black kitten stuck its head out. “Well, Blatzo,” Justine said, “that is the only way someone would ever call you cute.” She expected Blatzo to laugh. But he didn’t. “What’s wrong?” she asked. “We need to rescue the momma cat,” he said. “There’s another five kittens who need her.”

Chapter Two
Justine and Blatzo walked to the other side of the school. The parking lot was Ushaped. On each side were classrooms. At the back was the wall of the cafeteria. Against the wall was a locked shed where the janitor kept lawn mowers and other equipment. Beside the shed was a Dumpster with the lid closed. Blatzo said, “The kittens are under the shed. That’s where the momma cat has been hiding them.” Justine saw a couple of cafeteria plates near the shed. The plates looked as if they had been licked clean. “Hiding them from who?” Justine asked. “Do you see those plates? That means—”
