Student practice
Let’s read Chapter 12 and answer the questions.
1. Dale says to Eric, “‘you do-gooders need to be careful.
You think just ‘cause you want to help somebody,
somebody’s gonna be helped’” (Crutcher 184). What
inference can you make about Dale based on this
statement?
2. When talking about Sarah’s mother, Dale says,
“‘Scarfaced’d been better off like me, no mom at all. I’d
rather have nobody than somebody who’d do me like
that’” (Crutcher 186). Do you agree with Dale’s
statement? Explain.

Student practice
Let’s read Chapter 12 and answer the questions.
3. Mautz tells Eric that Brittain’s mom is concerned about her son, as
Brittain “seems particularly depressed” (Crutcher 191). Ms. Lemry then
tells Eric, “‘It would be good for you guys to give Mark a little room.
He doesn’t have much of a sense of humor, and that makes things
doubly tough on him. Breakups are hard under any circumstance.
Everybody hurts, Mobe’” (Crutcher 194-195). Based on this
information, make a prediction pertaining to Mark Brittain. Be as
specific as possible in your response.
4. Explain the external conflict present between Sarah Byrnes and Eric
(refer to page197-198).
5. Explain both sides of Eric’s internal conflict (refer to page 199).
