In The Liberation of Gabriel King by K.L Going Gabe and Frita are having a problem. Their problem is Duke. Duke is the school bully. He is torturing Gabe because he is hanging out with Frita (An African-American girl). So Frita punches Duke in the nose. Then his dad calls her an offensive name. Gabe’s dad stands up to him because it is the right thing to do and he is some one that will not try to be cool but would rather stand up and do the right thing. Gabe gets so scared from Duke that he wants to stay behind so Frita has to Liberate him to make him want to go to 5th Grade. That is the summary of The Liberation of Gabriel King.
