Ji-li is so excited because it is the first day of junior high. Ji-li could not wait for summer to end and for school to start up again. When first entering the building all the students head to the auditorium.
Uncle Zhu is a suspect of counter revolutionary activities.
So is Aunt Wu even though her only crime was dating men before Uncle Zhu.
It is the first day of school and Ji-li is smiling in her first class because there is no Dui-hui and none of the kids are from her school last year meaning it is a fresh start even with the class status.
Don't Worry about it.
Thank you saved my life!
Bai Shan asked the teacher if he could go home and study since it was self study time. This was insulting to Chairman Mao and was the wrong attitude to have in school as a kid.
Tell the teacher I have chores to do and I can not make it.
Ji-lis dad has now has to go to a political study class and is getting home late. Him and Ji-li's mom have been going into the bathroom and talking about bad things going on.
Ji-li Jiang forgot her precocious red book and she can not believe it. To her surprise Sun lin-lin had given her a plastic cover of the book to Ji-li saving her a lot of trouble.
Ji-li has Chang Hong cover for her. Ji-li starts to wonder what people might think if her and Bai Shan are doing stuff together for the teacher so she makes up a excuse and leaves.
