Dave had many marks from the beatings he would get at home along with the burns from the stove incident. He also was caught stealing food during the school day so he wouldn’t starve to death, but since his principal found out and called his mother his punishments extended and he was starved and beaten up, “ By the end of the session, my nose bled twice and I was missing a tooth” (p.33). He was also sleep deprived, he said that one of his teachers “began by questioning me about my attentiveness. I lied, saying I had stayed up late watching television”(p.33). Appearance was not much of a matter to Catherine, so he send Dave with the same torn, smelly clothes every single day, but Dave knew exactly what to say when questioned “When asked, I had my readymade excuses Mother brainwashed into me.” (p.30).

He met Mary, who fell in love with him.
