Rachel is turning 11, and Mrs. Price has made her take a sweater that Sylvia had thought was hers. Even though it wasn't hers she couldn't stand up for herself. Mrs. price had made her wear that itchy and smelly sweater. After that Phyliss had admitted that the sweater was hers. '
After she gave the sweater back to Phyliss. Mrs. Price didn't apologize, and when the bell rang she still didn't say anything. Rachel walked out the classroom on the hunt for Phyliss. While she was looking around for Phyliss she got pulled aside.
Sylvia the girl that said gross sweater was Rachel's. Sylvia said sorry for thinking that the sweater was hers. Rachel said that it was fine, and said she needed to go. So she continued to search for Phyliss.
Later on when she finally saw Phyliss, and noticed that she was surrounded by her friends. She decided to wait till everyone had left the table then she would ask. She waited for quite a while.
Once Phyliss was alone. Rachel walked over as slow as a sloth. When she arrived she asked a few questions. "Umm, Phyliss why didn't you get the sweater when Mrs. Price first asked?," Rachel asked. "Cause I wasn't paying attention Phyliss replied. "Oh... okay bye then," Rachel said .
After that she went home, told her mom what had happen, and celebrated her birthday. Her mom got so upset she transferred Rachel to another class. Her new teacher was very welcoming and kind. She showed Rachel what she was really capable of. She never had to touch the rough sweater again. After that incident she learned to stick up for herself.
