Great outlines of adolescence: remembering those childhood dramas, the larger than life moments, hierarchy of power within the teen social structure, the competition, drama, (oh the drama!), the mean tricks kids play. The commanding voice is interesting and adds a little hustle to the tone, like the situation must be handled immediately or your life is absolutely over—and it is to kids at this age, so it works.

I read it in school and and first time I found it both unrealistic and slightly boring. BUT after I had been reading it a couple of times and felt like I knew the characters, it ended up being a good text with other dimensions. However still with a bit of a boring and predictable plot.

I loved this short story - just beautiful. Captures the villainy of childhood without a single misstep.
