I opened the door of Simon’s old bedroom and looked inside. Uh-oh. I felt worried.

There was a bed in the room, but I couldn’t see it. There were too many things on top of the bed, next to the bed, in front of the bed and under the bed.

Ben and Tori have too many things in their house. Ben’s sister is coming to stay next month, but where can she sleep? Then Tori’s nephew has an idea. Why not have a garage sale?

“Nothing can go wrong,” he says. Is he right?

The Garage Sale is the third book in the ‘Hope Street’ series. At Beginner C level, this six-chapter novel should suit learners who are gaining confidence with past tense and extended narrative.
