(Marcus Narrating)There were people out there who had a good time in life. I was beginning to realize I wasn' t one of them. I just didn't fit. I didn't fit my old school. I definitely didn't fit at my new one. I heard that some kids got taught by their parents at home, but Mum couldn't do that unless I paid her to teach me. Because it was just her and me. And she went to work. She made 400 pounds a week. Where was I gonna get that kind of money from? Maybe, if I was like that movie kid , Haley Joel Osment, I could pay her that much, but if that meant being good at drama, forget it. I was crap. at drama, 'cause I hated standing up in front of people. So, basically, I had to go to school.
