When doing his paper route, the boy overhears yelling and glass breaking between Mister and MIss Worthington. I think that because of this, being the good kid he is, the boy will step in and try to help (71).
The boy is not eloquent because he stutters and can't pronounce many words. Mr.Spiro is very nice and helps him with new tricks to pronounce new sounds (67).
The boy felt a chockablock of embarrassment when he pronounced spaghetti like a three year old. Also it was very mean of the woman to laugh (83).
The boy's therapist said that his stammering is genetic. But no one else stammers in his family (85).
I think someone in his family stutters or does something similar (85).
When looking through the closet in his parents room he finds his birth certificate which says, unknown under "father". This opens up many questions like, who is his father? And who his dad right now?(90).
When the boy shouts or whispers he can recite words normally but when he talks at a normal volume, he has trouble (106).
When he walked into the room he saw that Mam's face was swollen and she had a black eye. I think Ara T did this to her because she tried to get the boy's knife back (111).
The incipient of phase of him improving his stuttering his starting to happen because of Mr. Spiro (120).
To hit Ara T. with a shovel was not a very erudite move by the boy because Ara T most likely caught a glimpse of who it was (128).
Ara T. thought that the boy was jejune and cheated him out of 50 cents and his yellow handled knife. This is why the boy hit him with a shovel (133).
"Rules is rules. Don't mean they don't need changing but best to abide by them till they changed" This show how different they talked in the south back then compared to now (140).
The boy was very languished after the hot long day at the zoo with Mam. He went there because his parents were not home like usual. I think he views Mam as more of a parent than his actual mom and dad (151).
The boy likes throwing the newspapers because throwing is his wayy of getting away from his stuttering (163).
Mr. Spiro is going on a long trip to the 7 great lake states. This means the boyy will not see him for a long time (169).
When the boy got back to his room, he saw his money drawer open and empty and the room was very very messy. I think someone broken. It is most likely Ara T (175).
Now Ara T is choking Mam and he said I'm gonna kill you like I did to your brother. This is why Mam has always hated him.
I don't know why mam doesn't want the boy to hang out with ara t.
I think mam is a very very close friend with the boys parents and that why she takes care of him so much.
I think Ara T wants to keep the boys knife.
I also think that Ara T won't give back the boys knife because he wanted to steal it.
The boy really wants his knife back but Ara t won't give it back.
Ara t is acting very weird lately and won't give back the boys knife.
Mr. Spiro is very nice to the boy. I don't know why he is not asking him why he is stuttering.
Mam takes great care of the boy. Mam is like his mom.
The boy is very happy to see Mr. Spiro every day. (130).
I think Ara T is a very bad person because he keeps acting strange to the boy and Mam tells the boy not to go near him. (124)
Mam is very protective to the boy. (126)
The boy is very comfortable around Mr. Spiro every day because "Mr. Spiro makes you feel like he was excited about the same thing you were excited about" (98).
The boy's dad might be embarrassed to show that stuttering might run in his family (86).
The boy wants revenge on the person who hurt Mam because, "I guess I had a Vengeful Heart.." (141).
The boy thinks that the rules are wrong and he disobeys them because, "...it was time for Mam and me to sit up front" (144).
I wonder if Mam enjoys taking care of the boy because she was Mam all the time and wouldn't change at all even when her friends were around (145).
