Chapter Three (Nelson) Summary

Nelson storms to his friend Shea's house for a haircut. Whenever he's feeling down, Nelson makes a drastic change to his physical appearance, and his hair is the perfect outlet for that. When he arrives, Nelson is furious with Kyle and clearly jealous of the crush Kyle has on Jason. He dyes his hair florescent green in the hopes that Kyle will notice him.

The next day at school, Jack Ransom, the school bully, calls Nelson a "faggot" and shoves him into a locker. Debra Wyler, Jason's girlfriend, compliments Nelson on his new hairdo, but Jason refuses to make eye contact with him. When Kyle compliments Nelson's hair, his hear soars. That elation doesn't last long when all Kyle wants to talk about is Jason. Nelson feels depressed and agitated. He agonizes why Kyle doesn't Kyle feel the same way about him.
