I haven’t seen his face in weeks. It’s always hidden behind some damn book cover. Today’s uplifting title is “Death in Venice”. I’m not sure if he’s still upset about his grandmother or if something else happened at school. Last week a group of boys crowded around him and spit in his face. I told him that he may want to reconsider hanging out with Ty.
