“Whipping Boy”

As a 10-year-old, Allen Kurzweil was not a tough kid. In fact, he was the runt of his boarding school in Switzerland. His size made him a target for bullies, and there was one kid who was particularly creative when it came to tormenting poor Allen. His name was Cesar Augustus. Kurzweil left the boarding school behind after one year, but he was never able to completely leave Cesar behind. As an adult, he decided to track Cesar down, and now he’s written a book about what he found.
