What’s the story about?
Story Description: The older guys Little Jack hangs out with are peer pressuring him to smoke. He looks for a way to be the MASTER OF HIS OWN LIFE by being able to safely say no without dying socially. He would feel like a MARTYR if he has to either give up having friends to hang out with after school or if he gave in to the peer pressure. He seeks the advice of the Ancient One as to how best to negotiate this dilemma.
Please note: This boy is called ‘Little Jack’ by the older guys he hangs out with after school. Why? One of the eighth-grade boys is also named Jack. To avoid confusion, they call the older boy ‘Big Jack’ and this sixth-grade boy ‘Little Jack’.
