About me: I asked God to give me a dog when I was 10. I suggested to my dad that if a dog is found in our yard I can keep it. My dad agreed. My mom went to the pound and found a dog for me. We kept it and named her “Happy”. I started to drive everyone nuts with a difficult question: Where is heaven? As Halloween approached I prepared for a pumpkin carving contest and went to any length to win first place. I tried to convince my family that I can make myself invisible. I tried to get Matt to let me out of a tetanus shot that I needed for little league season. I am the second son and the fourth child of the Camden family who live in the town of Glen Oak, California. I wanted to move out of the room I shared with Ruthie, and I got invited to a classmate's “make-out” party. I prepared Happy for a tv commercial; Happy's original owner saw her in the commercial and wanted her back but allowed me to keep her. I witnessed my teacher intervening between a young boy and his screaming father I felt guilty and asked my dad for help. Deena’s ex boyfriend showed up at school and threatened to shoot me. I practiced my babysitting skills on Ruthie. I worked to restore my little sisters holiday spirit when she saw that Matt was the mall Santa Claus. I learned that Deena had leukemia when she was younger. While waiting for my mother to give birth, I prayed in the hospital praying room for baby brothers. Deena and I went on our first date together and brought Lucy to accompany Deena's brother. I assumed the role of the 'man of the house' but felt Matt was undermining my authority when he kept on making fun of me. I considered dropping out of cooking class because I was the only boy that enrolled. I attempted to entertain a classmate who had a crush on me. My mom and dad found out one of my friends was in possession of marijuana. I was caught making lewd hand gestures in front of the school. I came across graffiti artists, one of whom coughed up blood after huffing and was in a dilemma after being threatened not to tell anyone what is going on. He was later admitted to the hospital and the mother blamed me and dad. Deena and I have a fight. Me and my friend Nigel experimented with smoking but were actually doing a project about selling cigarettes to minors. I befriended a classmate with Tourettes Syndrome. Deena and I confessed to giving each other love bites. I got dumped by Deena and later found out the real reason why she ended it. I attempted to fit in in high school. Lucy enlisted me to assist her with her homecoming Queen campaign to gain popularity in school. Matt blew my chance at a big date with an older woman when he was distracted by a woman and forgot to pick me up. I was on a quest to change my image by piercing my ear. I was persuaded to use my sister's bad reputation to boost my 'cool' quotient at school and got into some trouble of my own with twin bad girls, Carol and Sue Murphy. I made new friends, one of whom insults my mom and Lucy with his chauvinistic remarks. Norton, the kid that I befriended, was a fan of violent rap whose negative attitude towards women seems to be influenced by misogynist lyric. Matt and I tried to figure out why we delivered Mrs. Bink to the hospital. Matt and Lucy were suspicious after Lucy accidentally found a condom in a misplaced wallet. They learned that it belonged to me, I just so happened to be spending the evening with my new lady friend, Sasha. My mom got in the middle when I tried to break up with my girlfriend. I was mortified when word got around school that I’m a virgin.
