1 Julia was really frustrated. Why did this annoying thing have to happen now? "Where are my sunglasses?" she muttered, half to herself and half to anyone who would listen.
2 Julia and her family were leaving soon for a vacation at the beach. They had rented a beach house at Consuelo's Cove. It was on a secluded barrier island off the coast of their state. They had looked forward to this trip for a very long time. Julia had carefully packed everything - or so she had thought. She had just been double-checking her bag when she'd discovered that her sunglasses - her treasured new magenta sunglasses - were missing.
3 "Calm down," her older brother Michael said, passing by her room. "You are always in such a tizzy!"
4 "I am not! I suppose you think you behave as a perfect and proper gentleman all the time. Leave me alone!" Julia was about to cry.
5 Michael began to feel sympathy for his sister and returned to the door of her room. "What's the matter?" he asked.
6 "I am just trying to find my sunglasses!" Julia cried. "Danny gave them to me for my birthday!"
7 Danny was Julia's best friend. Julia had had her eye on a certain pair of sunglasses, and Danny had surprised her with them about six weeks ago on her birthday. Michael thought that Julia had a crush on Danny. Julia had always denied it. He thought about teasing her yet again but decided that, this time at least, he would be a compassionate brother. He walked into her room and gently touched her shoulder.
8 "Stop for a minute. Where do you remember having them last?" Michael asked. He sat on the edge of the bed. Julia was still frantically digging things out of her bag.
9 Julia sat down next to him, put her head in her hands, and began to consider the question.
