Plot Summary
It's Rachel's eleventh birthday and it starts off at school in Mrs. Price's math class. The teacher asks about the owner of an ugly red sweater and gives it to Rachel because she believed about what Silvia told her. Rachel couldn't speak up that it wasn't hers. She starts pushing the sweater away until Mrs.Price tells her to put it on and so Rachel does. After class, Rachel "starts feeling three" and finds out that the sweater actually belongs to a girl named Phyllis Lopez.
