Writers use italics to emphasize words or phrases. 

Italics

In paragraph 2, Van Draanen puts the word eighth in italics to emphasize the narrator’s feeling about how much time has passed since second grade. Apparently, the narrator feels like it has been a really long six years! When reading a word in italics, place a special emphasis on the word to ensure that you read it the way the author intended.
