Tangerine Part 1, Chapter 18 Summary

Tuesday, September 12

  • The local newspaper prints a story on the sinkhole, as well as an announcement of a school meeting for 7th and 8th graders to work out a relocation plan. Ya think?
  • Old Charley is back in town, and is taking over the case, which is fine by Mr. Fisher.
  • He has declared the main building safe, so 6th graders will return to school on Thursday.
  • But of course the field of portables is an official disaster area. And guess what the radius of condemned property includes? Half of the bleachers on the football field. So Erik just lost half his audience. Ha.
