Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that day forward his life became a hell of irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances, and Cory embarked on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist to discover the cause of his disease. Soon it became unclear what tics were symptoms of his disease and what were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty is that it kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell.

Final exam review notes

Compare Fiction and Non-fiction- On-Level used this text

From "The Burn Journals" (Vintage Books, 2005), by Brent Runyon

One time, when I was little, I was sitting up front in the old Datsun we used to have and Mom went into a store to buy something and left me in the car by myself. I pushed in the cigarette lighter because it looked like something you should push in, and then after a while it popped back out. And I took it out and held it in my hand. The inside was a pretty color of orange and it was shaped in a spiral like my fingerprint, and I wanted to touch my fingerprint to it because they were such a perfect match. And I did. I pushed my thumb right into the orange cigarette lighter and it was either hot or cold, I couldn't tell which at first, and then it was hot, really, really hot, and I screamed and dropped the cigarette lighter and opened the door with my other hand. It was winter and there was a pile of snow right outside the car and I stuck my thumb into the snow. ...

When Mom came back to the car, I didn't want to tell her what I did, so I just sat in the front seat the whole way home, letting the pain build up inside me. I kept my face blank and made it all the way home without her finding out what I did.
