In "Loser" in the October issue of Teen Ink, I felt impressed by James' honesty in how he felt because he had always lost. I understand where he is coming from when he says he never wins anything. However, he shouldn't give up. The experience that he is getting will help him so much when he is older. He will be a mature adult that knows how to handle disappointment. the one step that puts him in from of everyone else will be a huge step then compared to now. instead of having to struggle through life to learn lessons, he will have already learned them.
