If I Ever Get Out of Here

If I Ever Get Out of Here
Eric Gansworth
Fiction G157i
What do you do when you’re American Indian, so nobody in your class talks to you, dirt poor like snow-blowing-through-the-roof poor, small for your age so bullies like Evan Reiniger make you their punching bag, and a Beatles fan, meaning your favorite band broke up years ago?

Well, you make friends like George Haddonfield, a new kid in town, tell lies because what George doesn’t know about your house won’t hurt him. Tell truths, 'cause someone’s going to listen to you about Evan, right? And make your own music since in the end your friends and family are all you have.
