His friends call him the "Thinker," and he's leader of their gang to plot their pranks so they won't get caught. At home, there's no getting away with anything. Krame's father is an alcoholic, who beats him mercilessly, forces him to stand in the corner for hours on end, and locks him in an unlit stairwell without food or water. His mentally ill mother fails to give any emotional comfort.
