9780395836279: As Ever, Gordy

Gordy couldn't be more unhappy about moving back to his hometown of College Hill, where everybody knows his family's troubled history. In North Carolina, Gordy's life had finally seemed to be on the right track. But in College Hill, Gordy and his sister, June, move into a cramped apartment with their brother Stu and his new family. The principal at Gordy's school immediately has it in for him, his old pals encourage him to cause trouble, and his one-time nemesis, Elizabeth, hates him more than ever. It seems to Gordy as though the whole world is against him. Will he slip back into his old trouble-making ways for good, or will he be able to keep growing into the successful person he was striving to become?

Born to be bad?

Mueller cleared his throat and went on talking
as if I hadn’t said a thing. “On the other hand,
Donald dropped out of school the day he turned
sixteen. Believe me, I wasn’t a bit sorry to lose
him.” He paused and gave me another long hard
look. “I wonder which of your brothers you take
after, Gordon.”
 It was just the way I’d known it would be—
everybody remembered my father and my brothers.
They all expected me to turn out every bit as
bad as they had. The only question was, whose
path would I follow? Would I become the town
drunk? Would I drop out of school and blow
up gas stations? Would I desert if another war
started?
 When I didn’t say anything, Mueller frowned.
“I plan to keep an eye on you, Gordon. Any sign
of misbehavior and I’ll come down on you hard.
Is that clear?”
 “Yes, sir,” I muttered. His message was clear.
It was my first day at Hyattsdale High, and the
principal already hated me.
