sister I want to win a jacket like yours that you have,
no one paid attention in class why?
“beanpole” and “string bean,” and I knew that’s what I looked like.
Marta is in 8th grade. She is very smart and has worked hard to earn the "Scholarship jacket." This goes to the person in the school with the best grades, also marta sister has won the jacket.
it is better to give it to another student
In May, close to graduation, spring fever had struck as usual with a vengeance.2 No one paid anyattention in class; instead we stared out the windows and at each other, wanting to speed up the lastfew weeks of school.
You know Marta, a jacket does not represent you
marta everytime she saw her reflection in the mirror she say "Pencil thin, not a curve anywhere." Iwas called “beanpole” and “string bean,” but that's not true.
Marta by accident heard what the director and the PE teacher were saying, and she realized that the director did not want to give Marta the jacket because she is Mexican and does not have much money, something totally unfair
what was that he say!
but Marta has the best grades
After what happened, the director told Marta to start selling the jacket for 15 dollars, to which Marta went to ask her grandfather for 15 dollars to get the jacket but her grandfather gave her to understand that a jacket does not define who Marta is actuallyd
Marta, realizing that a jacket does not represent who Marta really is, decided to go to the director and tell him not to buy the jacket because it is unfair because she tried too hard to get it.
I'm sorry, director, I won't buy the jacket, but, I try my best
