27. Whoa...that's so true for small towns.
I dated a guy who was a football hero, even saw his award at the school where I went also years later. So many parents and adults put everything on kids, especially for sports like football. But it seems Ron, as a kid, was already showing signs of what he was to become. He got his way way too many times because no one could tell him no. I'm halfway through the book now. It's good your mom was friends with Annette, she seemed like a really good sister to Ron.
