A Separate Peace
By John Knowles
Gene and Phineas are two very different people. Gene is a very smart individual. He has perfect grades in all of his classes and even breakout when he gets a grade lower than an A. Phineas was different. He had terrible grades and was even at the point that he was going to get in trouble. He would even ask Gene for help. What Phineas lacked in knowledge, he made up for in athletics. He was the star athlete, carefree, handsome, and Gene envied him deeply.
