David Schlachter

I was raised by sewer rats after being abandoned by parents that I didn’t even know. After years living lower than the dredges of society, I found a book and learned to read, and write. I scrounged for pencils and wrote wherever I could. I wrote about my life, and how I thought. Eventually a poet/hobo befriended me and helped me to get a publishing deal. It changed my life. Since then, I’ve worked my way up to become a Nobel Prize laureate and a hope for millions. Pretty good for a grade ten student.
