August had found out Jack Will was not really his friend. It was the day of halloween, and August was going to wear his Boba Fett, but ended up going as the bleeding scream. Everyone thought he was coming as Boba Fett. When he got to his homeroom he stood near a desk, and watched Julian talk to these two other people. Jack Will was saying mean things.
Jack punches Julian in the mouth. Jack at this point still does not know why August is mad at him. Summer had given him a hint. Jack Will was sitting in Science class when we figured out why August was mad at him. Ms. Rubin was talking about the partners for the Science fair project, and Ms. Rubin put Jack Will and August together.
