Meet the Characters

spencer character


Ten-year-old Spencer is grumpy that his family moved at the end of the school year. He is anxious about starting a new school for fifth grade. He’s shy and struggles with making new friends, especially close ones like he left behind. He is kind, empathetic, and also a deep thinker.

Spencer likes all sports and plays several, but his favorite by far is hockey.

Spiders terrify him … and he isn’t fond of the dark, either!

He’s intrigued by the infinity of space. He loves learning about the moon and the solar system. Spencer often gets lost in his thoughts and gets teased that his head is in space!

justin character


Justin is seven years old and going into second grade. He’s outgoing, fun-loving, and enjoys making people laugh. He loves all sports, especially baseball and soccer.

He wants to play all the time. He has no trouble making new friends. He likes school only because he gets to be around his friends.

Justin also loves candy and just about anything with sugar. However, he is NOT a fan of vegetables.

Justin is messy and his shoes are always untied. He can get dirty within minutes of waking up.

Justin loves life … but doesn’t like to read. He struggles with reading and would prefer to do anything else (except maybe eat vegetables).

Ms. Lori

What is up with the new nanny?

I mean, she’s nice and usually in a good mood, but she is odd!  She says and does the strangest things, like making dandelion oil, collecting rocks, and making her own special teas.

Justin likes her because she laughs at his silliness and plays fun games with him.

Spencer knows she doesn’t likes him, but he’s not sure he likes her either. She stares him straight in the eyes and seems to read his mind. He knows she has secrets. Why doesn’t anyone else see that? She’s hiding something … he knows that.

And what is in that big bag that she always has with her?
