The Bones of Who We Are: Gabe Facts

REMINDER: Gabe’s a poet. This is one of his poems about hope

Five more facts about Gabe

  1. His favorite music anything that makes him feel which means the lyrics have to be meaningful. It makes sense. He’s a poet after all.

  2. Gabe’s favorite food is food. He’ll eat pretty much anything (which if you asked him probably goes back to his childhood and always being hungry).

  3. He’s complicated, but not in the it-gives-me-an-excuse-to-be-a-jerk kind of way. He’s got a past that has shaped his perspective and is trying to navigate while at the same time being stuck in the quicksand of high school.

  4. He’s the strong, silent type, but that doesn’t mean he won’t talk. He’s actually pretty funny, which Abby finds out in Swimming Sideways.

  5. Gabe LOVES sports, especially basketball (which he’s really good at).

The Ugly Truth: A Letter from Seth

Dear Reader:

First thing you should know about me: I can’t be trusted.

Why? I lie.

I know it’s wrong, and I do it anyway. It’s survival instinct.

For this letter, though, I’ll do my best to tell you the truth (within reason and as long as I can preserve my safety). . .

My name is Seth Peters. I’ve lived in Cantos, Oregon my whole life, and I’m the only child of Jack and Kate Peters. I’m pretty good at school - I’m a junior; I’m really good at soccer which will probably be how I get to college (if I live that long); I’ve got a lot of friends, and a lot of people want to be my friend.

That’s all I got.

Any more and I might scare you away. The deeper we go, the darker it gets. I doubt you’ll read my story feeling like we should hold hands and sing campfire songs. No one really wants the honest truth. Lies are safer, easier, and allow us to turn our heads, so we don’t have to face the ugly truth.

So, I guess the overall message I’m trying to tell you is to enter the story I’m about to tell at your own risk.

Sincerely,

Seth
