Truesdale was just like most of the students at Lake Shore Middle. He wanted to be seen and heard by people, especially the ones he liked the most. But unlike most 8th graders he was rarely spoken to. Maybe it was because he wore a set of green cushy headphones every day that never seemed to be connected to anything. Most students figured he wore the head phones daily because he didn’t want to be bothered by anyone. And when he worked up his nerve to speak, students would just pretend not to hear him just like today. So, he did what he always does and just walked off, with his head down.
