Brave and beautiful Zoë heads off to try assistant teaching at Jeremy’s school in classes (e.g. grades) four, five, and six.

Jeremy comes home complaining that his “friends” are trying to scare him by telling him the teachers will beat him. “They’re just going for a reaction,” we say. “Try not to show any interest.” Kaka tells Jeremy that if he doesn’t come back to school for the afternoon, he (Kaka) won’t be Jeremy’s friend. “Just ignore him,” we say. “But he glares at me,” says Jeremy. “It’s horrible when that happens.” It’s hard to know how to help him.
