Missing 100 Days of School. A True Story. 

Missing 100 days of school should have pointed toward the end of the story, but instead it was only the beginning.

When your parents are drug addicts, school is optional. My parents didn’t make me attend, so I chose not to. My parents accepted any excuse for why I didn’t want to go to school on any given day. It didn’t matter if I said I was sick or just wanted to stay home. They spent their days trying to find drugs and didn’t care how I spent my time, as long as I stayed out of their way.
