Ralph dejó de mirarme y fijó la vista en otro chico.
—¿Qué crees, Scott... le damos un siete?
Scott me miró de arriba a abajo.
—¿Un siete? A lo mejor.
—En su mejor día, quizás —dijo otro chico.
—Ah, ¿en un buen día como el viernes?
—¿Cómo el viernes pasado? —completó Ralph.
Todos se echaron a reír otra vez.
—Todos ustedes son unos cerdos. —les dije.

Excerpt

I couldn't swallow, I couldn't talk. When I got scared like this, a hand came up from inside and grabbed all the words out of my mouth. My dad started coming toward me and everything went into slow motion. I tried to run into the kitchen, but every step seemed to take five minutes. So I grabbed a chair and pulled it in front of me. My dad picked it up and threw it across the room. Then he grabbed my arm.
"Stupid," he hissed. "No good. Nothing."
