Davy's birthday was July 1st, a whole month away. Memories of previous years' celebrations flashed instantaneously before his eyes: pool parties (hosted by Uncle Frank and Aunt Jane, of course); movies; putt-putt golf, sleepovers where no one actually went to sleep but competed in video games until dawn. These all had one component in common: friends! This birthday, there would be no friends. The thought of spending his eleventh birthday in the company of a whiny sister, a mom who didn't care how he felt, and a step-father who rated one rung lower than pond scum was too much for Davy to bear.
"It won't be fun for me!" he shouted at Jim. "Nothing about this summer will be any fun for me! Do you hear me? NOTHING!"
