When Jeffrey returned home, he had gotten the mail on his way in and noticed a letter that caught his eye, he debated whether to wait till his parents got home to open it, or to just open it right then, which he did, and after looking at it, he threw it in the garbage. In my opinion, I think it was a good idea for Jordan sonnenblick to make Jeffrey do that because it's something that a kid would to today, so he is keeping it realistic
Anyone(who has read the book)remember the kid with cancer? That's Jeffrey Alper, after 4 years of hospitalization, he is finally returning to a normal life... sort of
I can't let dad see this, he will make me study 24/7, then I wont have any time to grind on Fortnite
I survived 4 years of cancer, Yay!
He is now in his last year of middle school and the only way for him to advance into high school is if he passes the state test, but he has been struggling with math lately. On the bright side, he is now with his best friend, Tad, and met the new girl at school
Jeff tells Tad about what he had done to the letter, he thinks that it was a bad idea, but will still tutor him so that he can pass and make it to high school with him. With that Jeffrey agrees to help Tad walk so that he may accept his diploma at the end of the year with Jeff, that was the deal that they made. Again, in my opinion, Jordan Sonnenblick had made the characters do things that probably gave people a happy feeling when they read it, it told them that Jeffrey and Tad would work together all throughout the book to overcome different obstacles together, I think that's good to have in a book(people working together)
I pass, you walk
Wow, Jeff, whose the babe?
Now, Jeffrey began to crush on the new girl right. After class he was able to talk to her in the hallway, he figured that she could get whichever guy she wanted, so he tried his best to stay interesting, but since he was the first person to meet her, he thought his chances were higher to get with her.
