In the book Stand Tall , Tree is at school. He isn’t really the social type so he sits in the back at lunch. 

There is a new girl at school, and she doesn’t really have any friends, but she is not afraid to speak her mind. She is picked on by these other girls, and Tree notices it, so he does something he’s never done before. 

He invites a girl to sit with them and through this, he starts to make a new friend, getting to know her and how she feels 

They’re both kind of similar.
