Great job! However, when Carmen says she is going to be late to her HONORS English class, that doesn't quite make sense because Alex would already know that. Try- Carmen: Finally! I'll be late for English if we don’t hurry up.You know how [Mrs/Ms/Mr Teachers name] gets mad if we're not on time because it's an honors class.
 And Alex is a little brother, right?

Not bad but I don't really understand the plot of this. I mean, what's the point? Also, punctuation and capitalization are needed.

The plot of this is Carmen needs to find a way to get to her HONORS English class on time.
