Today when I read the story was talking about August's parents arguing on whether or not to send him to middle school they were saying stuff like "Don't make him do anything he doesn't want to do." I understand that it can be hard to go to new places with new people and doing things you're not used to doing. It's like last summer when I went to a hockey camp in Edmonton on my own, I was used to taking one friend with me but this year I didn't. It was hard to put myself out there and have new people be faster or better than me, I even think feeling so uncomfortable made it hard to play my best. Back to the book, I think even though it maybe be hard for August to fit in or feel comfortable he would eventually get used to it and it will be better, I think school would be good for August. I eventually got used to going to hockey school alone.
