What you're about to read is a fable, a parable, a tall tale, if you will.
The essence of everything is true.
I may have exaggerated here and there.......
Perhaps my parents aren't all that massively awful.
Maybe my best friend doesn't go on quite so much.
Maybe my teachers weren't exactly quoted verbatim.
Maybe my transformation wasn't quite so dramatic.
Know this: All the supersizing I've done is to make you understand the whole truth more truly.
The truth about how parents can get under your skin.
The truth about bullies and what makes them tick.
The truth about being afraid in a great big world.
And the crazy things that can give you the confidence to see life in an entirely new way.
