by Jordan Layne
One sunny summer morning, Brandon Jacobs runs outside, excited to see his neighborhood friends. He sees Nick, Matt, and Mark, who inform him about a cool new racecar they want to purchase from the Jonesís Store. The only problem? They donít have enough money to buy it.
After Brandon realizes all he has in his pocket is three toothpicks and a piece of gum, he frantically scrambles around, trying to find someone kind enough to trade with him so he can get enough money to purchase the racecar. Will he be able to trade what he thinks is useless, his three toothpicks and a piece of gum, to someone who has a kind heart?
