Episode 4: Let’s hope she’s worth it.
The date is Friday, October 7, 1983. Fifteen-year-old Matthew Van Der Boot is simply trying to survive another day of sophomore year in high school. As you recall, Matthew’s decision to tell the principal what he witnessed in the locker room leads to him leaving school without permission and walking home. “You scramble up and crawl through on your stomach, lowering yourself head first onto your unmade bed.” In this episode, we are going to go back a few hours in time and see how his day might be different had he decided to stay quiet about the incident.
