In the story, the narrator did not want to tell his mom what happened about his wart, so he tried to hide it up. But it gets worse and the narrator still did not want to tell his mom.
Gum helps focus in school better. Nyssa Peck, a thirteen year old girl attending Sherwood Middle School, says, “gum has been proven to increase scores.

As a child, I enjoyed reading because I was able to go into a different world and travel through other people's minds.
