Mula mula baca chapter 1 memang boring do,tak paham apa...ngantuk aku atas katil baca.Dia duk citer si Richard tu tak nak tembak rusa la tak sampai hati la apa la.Boring do...pastu depa sebuk citer tanya itu ini..abang dia kutuk adik...tak paham konflik keluarga dorang ni.Pastu tak puas ati balik rumah tulis poem.Masih tak nampak lagi apa yang best and dia cuba nak cerita kan.

Masuk chapter 2,bila ko kenal Hannah Schermers ni dah start best sikit.Hannah Schermer ni sorang pompuan German,blondie hair with blue eyes...lawa series...untuk la nigga dapat dia...Richard ni hero citer ni setau aku nigga sebab character dia ada black skin...not sure la...

Caner Richard boleh kenal lak ngan si awek lawa ni?
Masa tu dalam kelas.Richard's English Teacher,Mrs Hansen ada baca satu poetry dalam kelas dia.Tajuknya Tree ditulis Mr Joyce Kilmer.Si Richard ni pulak tertarik dengan poem yang simple and mesej dia pasal nature tu sama dengan jiwa dia,so dia ni pun gi pinjam buku si teacher dia punya and amik alamat si penulis tu senyap senyap.Keluar kelas jer,dia nampak awek blondie tengah nangis tepi jalan.Awek lawa macam kat atas,saper tak caring,betul tak?Sebagai lelaki macho,Richard pun tegur la.Tanya... " Awat hang nangis???" pastu dia tak jawab...jual mahei...and Richard pun perasan kat buku dia ada tulis  Dirty Hun. Hun ni macam panggilan untuk orang German la...Dirty Hun tu kira kutukan or cacian la.Bukan Mee Hun kotor tau.....

       Richard tak puas ati dengan masyarakat sekeliling dia yang mula menunjukkan semangat patriotik dorang dengan mula membeci German.Balik jer rumah dia mula tulis surat hantaq kat Mr Kilmer nak khabaq kat dia yang dia ni tulis Poem.

       Pastu ada lagi insiden yang berlaku kat tavern milik Hannah ni.Kat dinding kawasan dia kena spray dengan tulisan Dirty Hun.Kesal ngan apa yang berlaku....Mrs Hansen suh anak murid dia tanda tangan kad sebagai sign of apologies and concern tapi Abner ngan Harry ni troublemaker dalam kelas tu tak kasi....Ramai jer nak sign tapi takut kena buli.Hanya Richard jer yang berani sign and he is the lone signer.Perh....kalau Hannah kat situ...konfem melt punya ahhh...Series....

      Disebabkan tindakan Richard,satu sekolah label dia sebagai penyokong German.Pastu si Richard mintak kad tu dari Mrs Hansen nak kasi kat Hannah.Onthe way nak pergi tu...Harry ngan si Abner ni datang nak kasi bantai si  Richard.Dorang datang macam taiko...last last...

Richard menang belasah dua ekor tu...buat malu tul....mood dia dah tak baik so dia tak jadi hantar kat Hannah..so dia gi panjat pokok oak gi tengok keretapi...hobi dia...balik rumah dia dapat surat dari Mr Kilmer...

 Si Kilmer ni nasihat Richard supaya share poem dia kt orang lain,and hantar satu poem kat dia..dia nak baca.So malam tu dia  try bagi tau kat keluarga dia,last last keluarga dia tak support.Kena kutuk lak ngan abang dia Gus.Abang dia cakp dari tulis poem,lebih baik try fit in ngan budak sekolah dia,.,,,

   Esok pagi dia tunjuk surat dia tu kat Mrs Hansen..Mrs Hnasen pun bangga la anak murid dia dapat surat dari orang femes...so dia tolong la si Richard pilih poem yang best nak bagi kat Mr Kilmer.Teacher dia suh share kat kelas tapi he still not ready yet.Kuar kelas...jumpa Hannah...nak mintak maaf pasal haritu...sambil jalan tu Hannah luah kan semua masalah dia kat Richard...start dari situ dorang makin rapat...

  Wei agak la aku nak citer part dia bercinta semua....mati la aku....ni pun dah 4 chapter aku ringkas kan ni. Nak tau selanjutnyab aca sendiri...kepada yang takder tapi berminat nak tau...baca summary hasil kerja dari kelas kami....Enjoy...
