Cody – Dakota Jones – Code Red
Hi, I’m Cody Jones. My real name is Dakota but no one calls me that unless
I’m in trouble. I look like my dad—he’s tall and thin and has the same red hair
and freckles, while my four-year-old sister Tana looks like my mom—blonde,
blue-eyed, and sturdy. Tana is deaf, so I’ve learned sign language.
My bedroom is upstairs in our two-story house. We live in Berkeley, which
some people called Bezerkley because some of the people here are kind of
“interesting.” We used to live in the Gold Country, and I miss my friends there.
But I’ve made new friends here so it’s getting better. We moved because my
parents got a divorce and my mom took a job as a police officer in Berkeley.
My dad is a lawyer and he moved his practice here to be near Tana and me.
I go to Berkeley Cooperative Middle School, a few blocks away from my home.
I usually wear shorts or jeans, t-shirts, my red hoodie, and tennis shoes. I sort
of adopted the neighbor's have a cat—his name is Punkin—but Tana is allergic so he spends most of his time in my yard. I made him a cool collar. He’s orange.
More about me later. I have to get to school.
