Beloved author Rita Williams-Garcia intertwines the lives of three very different teens in this fast-paced, gritty narrative about choices and the impact that even the most seemingly insignificant ones can have. A National Book Award finalist.
One day. One huge New York City high school. Three girls, headed toward one slow-motion collision.
Thereâ€™s Trina, a pretty, self-involved artist whoâ€™s sure sheâ€™s bringing beauty and color to the lives of everyone around her, regardless of what they really think. Thereâ€™s Leticia, who skates by on minimal effort; sheâ€™s more interested in her cell phone, her nails, and gossip than school. And thereâ€™s Dominique, an angry basketball player whoâ€™s been benched for low grades.
When Trina unknowingly offends Dominique, Dominique decides that itâ€™s going downâ€”after school, sheâ€™s going to jump Trina. Trina has no idea. And Leticia is the only witness to Dominiqueâ€™s rage, the only one who could stop the beatdown from coming. But does she want to get involved in this mess?
