The Incredible Life of Jake the Podiatrist
My life before Grace
Key passage #1
What this proves is that Jake will gladly take time away from his day to teach someone English. He does this, because Grace thinks he is a loser, and he does not want anyone else to think that.
Key Passage #2
Before this quote, Jake had made a joke about murder. When no one laughed, he said "I guess murder isn't very funny." What this proves about Jake, is that he will make a joke out of anything. He does this, because he is afraid that when people find out about Grace thinking he is a loser, they will think it's true.
