This story by Scott Foley is compelling. And a little bit heartbreaking. The narrator is a young boy with superior verbal skills and creativity. But he has a problem, one experienced by many people, though he doesn’t know that. He moves through the story describing all the ways he is hurt by this problem, and though he finds no solution at this stage, the reader has hope that he does find resolution at some point in the future. The narrator’s manifest intelligence provides evidence that he will, in fact, succeed in dealing successfully with it. Nevertheless, it is impossible not to feel his worry and distress.
One of the saddest bits describes something his grandmother says to him, a thing that should never come out of a grandmother’s mouth to a grandchild.
For everyone who reads this story, and who may not ever have had this problem, it should make you think about the many issues addressed here, including the issue of accepting all people, without judgment, the way they are.
