for That Squeak by Carolyn Beck and François Thisdale
Joe and Jay were best friends. There was nothing more fun than spending the day exploring on their bikes.
But things have changed now. Jay is gone and Joe can't help but notice that his parents have forgotten that Jay's bike is still parked outside the school. Joe decides to take the bike home -- to polish it and paint it up just like Jay would have liked.
That is when the new kid Carlos offers to help -- but he probably just wants to steal it. Then again, maybe there is more to Carlos's story than meets the eye. And maybe Joe has finally found a new friend to share the special place and the bike that has "that squeak" with.
