First Hundred Words: The Ducktators

I've been playing with the first 100 words of some of my books. To avoid cutting off in the middle of a sentence, I'll go to 100 and then add the rest of the sentence in question. Here's the first hundred words of THE DUCKTATORS

Flip was used to Duncan Plotznik. He and her brother Daniel had been friends for as long as she could remember.
 They had always gone about together, doing whatever boys did, mostly with computers.
Flip never considered Duncan, any more than she considered the lawnmower. He arrived, did things in the Chases’ garden shed, and went home. He turned up again tomorrow or next week, depending on the number of obsolete computers currently crammed into the shed. That’s why Flip was unsurprised when Duncan entered the kitchen one Friday afternoon.
“Dan’s in the shed,” she said, but Duncan crouched and swapped slow blinks with Tooska, Daniel’s cat.
