Description - what have you learned about Ricky so far?
Described as rebellious but really, he's just a nervous kid
Lady from Child Services describes Ricky's bad behaviour
Bad track record, "God only knows what he's capable of".
Quiet and shy to begin (uncommunicative and sullen)
Ricky's actions speak louder than his words, e.g. gets back into the police car
Immature - haikus
Can be obedient and mannerly - sits down when Bella asks him to
Not as tough as he seems - faints when Bella kills the pig.
His behaviour on the farm and his clothing suggest that he is more used to city living than country living
Proud of his appearance, clothing and image
