The Pet War by Allan Woodrow
“There are two types of people in the world: dog people and cat people. Dog people are clever, friendly, good-looking, funny and overall fantastically wonderful. Cat people, on the other hand, are ugly, boring, and smell bad. I’m not making that up – those are the facts.”
Otto is a dog person. His older sister Lexi is a cat person. They both want a pet. Their mother agrees if Otto and Lexi can prove their responsibility. They must earn $500 towards their pet by the month’s end, keep their grades up, do chores around the house, and take care of the winning pet. Sounds easy, right?
Well, responsibility isn’t Otto’s middle name. Right off the bat, Lexi has charts, posters, and tutoring positions to rake in the cash. Otto has a little more trouble figuring out how he can earn money. Becoming a magician? Selling apples? Working at a grocery store? Nothing pans out the way Otto hoped, and time is running out! He has to think of something, anything, fast – or else he’ll be living with a new addition to the family not of his choosing.
