Everyone gets excited. They get more excited when the announcer starts saying their train number, but then hear that their train was delayed by 3 hours because of wildfires in Connecticut.
Here is a preview of the first page:
Chapter 1: The City That Never Sleeps
        It all started when group #3 was the given the wrong directions for the 5th grade field trip. No one had the slightest idea that it could have been on purpose. So it really all started when Adam was reading the book The City That Never Sleeps.
        It was fascinating to Adam that one library book could continue to amaze a person throughout 617 pages.
        “This is very interesting,” Adam thought, “I want to visit this city someday."
        Just then, Adam’s mom poked her head into his room. “Adam, it’s time for dinner. Go wash up.”
       “Awwww,” Adam moaned. As he got up though, he spotted a flier he had gotten from school about the 5th grade field trip, which he hadn’t yet showed his mom.
       He had an extremely risky idea. He went to Microsoft Word on his computer & typed a phony letter:
        It’s the 5th grade field trip!
        Where: New York City, New York
        When: January 27th, 2012 - January 29th, 2012
        Why: Our study of the subway
       Chaperones needed!
        It was fool proof! Adam took the mouse in his hand & printed out the letter. He grabbed it and, before he went downstairs, washed his hands. As he entered the kitchen, he thought about what he was going to do, and handed his mother the letter.
        “What’s this? A field trip?” Adam's mom asked.
