And if you keep thinking of me messing around on ice, then it's your own stupid fault. All that, and I'd met Alicia too.
What is Kobo Super Points?
I was going to say that maybe you should know something about me before I go off on one about my mum and Alicia and all that. If you knew something about me, you might actually care about some of those things.
But then, looking at what I just wrote, you know quite a lot already, or at least you could have guessed a lot of it. You could have guessed that my mum and dad don't live together, for a start, unless you thought that my dad was the sort of person who wouldn't mind his wife having boyfriends.
Well, he's not.
You could have guessed that I skate, and you could have guessed that my best subject at school was Art and Design, unless you thought I might be the sort of person who's always being taken to one side and told to apply for college by all the teachers in every subject. You know, and the teachers actually fight over me. Forget art!
It would be a tragedy for the human race if you gave up French! Yeah, well. That sort of thing really, really doesn't happen to me. I can promise you, I have never, ever caused a fight between teachers. And you don't need to be Sherlock Holmes or whatever to work out that Alicia was a girl who meant something to me. I'm glad there are things you don't know and can't guess, weird things, things that have only ever happened to me in the whole history of the world, as far as I know.
If you were able to guess it all from that first little paragraph, I'd start to worry that I wasn't an incredibly complicated and interesting person, ha ha. This was a couple of years ago, this time when things were ticking along OK, when I was fifteen, nearly sixteen. And I don't want to sound pathetic, and I really don't want you to feel sorry for me, but this feeling that my life was OK was new to me.
I'd never had the feeling before, and I haven't really had it since. I don't mean to say that I'd been unhappy. It was more that there had always been something wrong before, somewhere—something to worry about. And, as you'll see, there's been a fair bit to worry about since, but we'll get to that.
For instance, my parents were getting divorced, and they were fighting. Or they'd finished getting divorced, but they were still fighting anyway, because they carried on fighting long after they got divorced.Hardcover , pages. It seemed to me that there was an Important Lesson in Life on every single page, that Sam Jones, the protagonist, is not talking with his own voice, but he is one of those generic puppets that appear in promotional movies to explain what you can do and cannot do as a teenager with a girlfriend.
