Xander likes the simple expression of complex thought. Books are his favorite. Recently he read a book called Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles by Ron Currie Jr. and he fell in love with the book. He also likes Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Corn is his favorite food, he really wants to go to North Carolina someday, he adores a girl who "doesn't want him anymore," and he thinks that helmets and workbooks are the best. Oh, and he loves hugs. Hug him.
