My name is Fran. Not Frank, just Fran, an ugly, boring name, for an ugly, boring person. I live in the poorest part of town with my grandfather, who`s just about the only friend I have. I haven't heard from mom since I was three. The last memory I have, she`s leaving me here and getting in her car.
My school life isn't that great either. Normal kids, middle class kids who have families, don't like run-down kids with no parents. Especially if that kid lives in a rundown house with most of the windows broken and the paint faded or crumbled off. Normal kids don't have that kind of sympathy.
