Joe tells Justin stories of what they could be. He realizes his stories have the power to provide motivation and hope once Justin begins wanting to improve his life. But Justin comes from a broken home and he is forced to Montana after a fight with his uncle.
Wilkins loses contact with him, yet still sees the spirit of Justin in strangers, whether it is the skinny boy around the corner, or in the woman smoking cigarettes ravenously, one after another. Joe Wilkins made an effort to treat him like a friend, unlike others. Carlo loved to tell wild stories about his family even though other kids teased him mercilessly.
Carlo and Joe create a bond based on being outcasts in their community. You are commenting using your WordPress.
