Question:What are two things that Victor is thinking about on his first day in seventh grade?
Answer: Two things that Victor is thinking about on his first day in seventh grade are France and Teresa. According to the text, “He already spoke… France” (paragraph 1). This is important because if Victor is thinking of leaving Fresno on his first day of school to travel in France it seems that he doesn’t really like Fresno very much. Also, as Gary Soto wrote, “Besides, Teresa, a… cute.” (paragraph 2). This is interesting because we know by the second paragraph that the conflict of this story is Victor getting Teresa to like him.
