Inside this Book – As far as I was concerned, the sun could have melted the blue right off the sky. Then the sky could be as miserable as I was. The DJ was saying annoying, obvious things like, “It’s summer! It’s hot out there!” And then he put on that retro Lone Ranger tune, something he liked to play every morning because he thought it was a hip way to wake up the world. “Hi-yo, Silver!” Who hired this guy? He was killing me. I think that as we listened to the William Tell Overture, we were supposed to be imagining the Lone Ranger and Tonto riding their horses through the desert. Maybe someone should have told that guy that we all weren’t ten-year-olds anymore. “Hi-yo, Silver!” Crap. The DJ’s voice was on the airwaves again: “Wake up, El Paso! It’s Monday, June fifteenth, 1987! 1987! Can you believe it? And a big ‘Happy Birthday’ goes out to Waylon Jennings, who’s fifty years old today!” Waylon Jennings? This was a rock station, dammit! But then he said something that hinted at the fact that he might have a brain. He told the story about how Waylon Jennings had survived the 1959 plane crash that killed Buddy Holly and Richie Valens. On that note, he put on the remake of “La Bamba” by Los Lobos. “La Bamba.” I could cope with that. I tapped my bare feet on the wood floor. As I nodded my head to the beat, I started wondering what had gone through Richie Valens’s head before the plane crashed into the unforgiving ground. Hey, Buddy! The music’s over.
Inside this book –Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe PDF Book by Benjamin Alire Saenz – My mom smiled at me. “Are you going to say good morning?” “I’m thinking about it,” I said. “Well, at least you dragged yourself out of bed.” “I had to think about it for a long time.” “What is it about boys and sleep?” “We’re good at it.” That made her laugh. “Anyway, I wasn’t sleeping. I was listening to ‘La Bamba.’” “Richie Valens,” she said, almost whispering. “So sad.” “Just like your Patsy Cline.” She nodded. Sometimes I caught her singing that song, “Crazy,” and I’d smile. And she’d smile. It was like we shared a secret. My mom, she had a nice voice. “Plane crashes,” my mother whispered. I think she was talking more to herself than to me. “Maybe Richie Valens died young—but he did something. I mean, he really did something. Me? What have I done?” “You have time,” she said. “There’s plenty of time.” The eternal optimist. “Well, you have to become a person first,” I said. She gave me a funny look. “I’m fifteen.” “I know how old you are.” “Fifteen-year-olds don’t qualify as people.” My mom laughed. She was a high school teacher. I knew she half agreed with me. “So what’s the big meeting about?” “We’re reorganizing the food bank.”
