Later in the book in a memory it tells us that on Alexander’s first trip with his brothers out on the boat, his older brother Calum is plagued with tooth pain. The pain is so bad that Calum uses his horse Christy to pull it out for him. As stated in the book, “And when Christy heard the whistle, she bunched her shoulders and sprang forward as she used to, without knowing she was tied to a man instead of a boat” (No Great Mischief 80). With this memory, it leads us to believe that Alexander went into Orthodontia after seeing the pain that his brother was in and he could not help him in any way. With Alexander’s ability to be able to go to college and to have that experience with his brother, it was able to give him a successful career because of the different ways they were growing up with Calum not being able to go to a dentist and Alexander being able to go to school to become

Her father, a avid fisherman, promised to take her fishing in Grapeland Falls for her birthday. Allison wasn’t a big fan of fishing --”all you do is just sit around for hours waiting to catch a fish and then you throw it back -- but she loved camping, sleeping under the stars and spending time with her father. This occasion, however, wasn’t meant to be, at least according to her father.
