Quotes from the book
Page 2; "I pleaded with my classmates - my friends - to back me up. This time when the class laughed it didn't sound so friendly. I felt my cheeks burning. Then I heard it. In aloud whisper from the back row. Freak. Except it sounded like FREEEEK."
Page 3-4; "Even at eight years old, I was smart enough to realize that something was very wrong and that until I figured out what it was, I'd better not get myself in deeper trouble. So I pretended I made everything up."
