Doctor Mia Excerpt:

Dad came into the room with a cheerful, “Good morning!” He took a look at his usually upbeat children, and saw they were slouched and bundled up. They both looked at him and replied, “good morning,” with a couple of weak smiles followed by a chorus of sneezing and coughing. Feeling a little worried, he walked over to Mia and gently felt her forehead. Then he put the back of his hand on Max’s forehead. Both kids felt hot.

Dad picked up his phone and began dialing. “Who are you calling?” Max asked.

“Your pediatrician.” Dad replied. “I think you are sick.”

“Oh no.” Mia said, eyes wide. “I don’t need the doctor I’m fine.” She stood up quickly, and then, feeling a little dizzy, sat right back down.

“I’m fine too.” Max said.

Mom popped into the room and said, “You both need to go to the doctor. I’m calling your school to tell them you’re sick.”
