Justin took a deep breath and collected his thoughts. Becky was an unbelievably consistent straight-A student. It was Justin who got the bad grades in school, and Justin who had to repeat every math class he'd ever taken. It was Justin who wished he could get the grades Becky got. Some things came easier for Justin: He was athletic, handy with tools, and good at making the best of whatever life threw at him. Mom called him her "lemons into lemonade" kid. But for the most part, Becky succeeded easily, whereas Justin had to work and work to just get a passing grade. Rather than having Becky catalogue all the things she supposedly "failed" at, Justin decided to try an alternative approach, one that wouldn't remind him of all the ways he had failed. "Okay, Becky, let's assume for a moment you fail this test again. What is the worst thing that could happen?" he asked. "I would be the oldest kid at school without a license and be humiliated," she replied. Justin thought he heard a bit of panic in her voice but continued with his plan. "Yes, but won't we still have to drive to school together for at least one more year anyway?" he asked. "Yes, but..." she started. "And who will know, if you don't tell anyone except your friends, that you don't have your license? You know Mom can't afford another car just for you, right?" "Yes," she said quietly. "So what difference does it make, really," he said. "Another three months to wait in the grand scheme of your life doesn't seem like all that long, right?" "I suppose not," she said. Justin could tell she was breathing more slowly now. "Besides," he said, "I would miss all the practice driving with you," and for good measure he reached over and pinched her arm. "Ow," she said, hitting back at him, "that hurt." "So let's go do this, okay? "Okay," she said. Becky cranked up the car, backed slowly out of the parking spot and drove up to the parking lot's exit. Justin noticed, as they waited for the traffic to clear, that she had remembered the turn signal. Use Chapters 1 and 2 to answer the following question: Which line from the text suggests Justin's alternative plan worked? "What are you so nervous about?" "Let's assume for a moment you fail this test again" "You know Mom can't afford another car" "Besides," he said, "I would miss all the practice driving with you."
