Speak Chapter 7 Summary
Our Fearless Leader
- In this chapter Melinda refers to herself as "Errant Student." ("Errant" means "one who errs, makes a mistake, screws up.")
- Anyhow, the bell has rung, and Melinda's hiding in the bathroom waiting for the mean kids and school personnel to clear out of the hall.
- She looks out the door and sees Principal Principal (the principal) nab another "errant student" (7.1).
- Somehow, this tricky student manages to gets away without a demerit. Principal Principal looks confused about how this has happened. This makes Melinda laugh.
