Sample text

Monster runs out from the flimsy kitchen door, rocking the whole mobile home as he bounds outside. ” He ignores me as always. ” Junior looks at me, sort of for help, sort of watching me watching him get treated like shit and being embarrassed about it. It’s totally pathetic. It makes we want to just leave and not have any friends. qxd:Layout 1 7/9/08 11:25 AM NEW Page 59 YEAR’S EVE 2000 Junior and I cower in the corner like we always do when the monster’s around. “You smell like shit,” he whispers to me.

He makes this seem like some sort of fucked-up gentleman’s club. “Just looking for something to do,” I admit. ” Junior sort of ignores him. ” I truly don’t know.

He’s putting us on. ) “It’s from Afghanistan. ” I look at Chaco for proof.
