I Am the Cheese

I Am the Cheese Chapter 27 Summary

  • Still in Hookset, Vermont, Adam sees his bike in front of Junior Varney's house. He decides to wait for a good time to grab it, when there aren't too many people around.
  • He sees Junior and his mother together, which makes him miss his own mother. Junior doesn't appreciate his mom, which infuriates Adam.
  • As Junior is about to leave with the bike, Adam shouts after him. Junior won't give him the bike, so the two boys get into a physical fight. (They never learned to "use your words" apparently).
  • Adam comes away with the bike and pedals off again toward his destination.
