"At lunch, Beverly sat next to Sheila Rose Hoffstetter. 'Do you know what happens when a person is late returning a library book?' Beverly asked.

'I'm not sure,' Sheila said, 'but I think you have to pay a lot of money.'

'Like how much?' asked Beverly.

'Oh, like a thousand dollars, I think,' answered Sheila."
