"Even worse, on the top of every single test and every single paper, Mr. Rudolph had drawn a picture of a sad face and had written "F" and "Try harder!" with his red pen. Gary had gotten an F on everything he'd done so far in the fifth grade. And he did not know how to try any harder."

--From Spaceman by Jane Cutler (Dutton, 1997).
