Excerpt!
 

As I pulled up into Ricardo’s driveway, Victoria and
two other girls who attended Eastview were standing
there holding signs that said, “Justice for Mitchell.” I
was sweating more than ever. Scared of both the police
and the girls I didn’t even know who were going to be
getting into my car.
“I didn’t know you were doing signs. I would’ve
made me one.”
Ricardo and some guys were busy placing things in
the car’s trunk.
“Are you okay? The time is now,” said Ricardo.
“I’m ready but a little nervous, too.”
“You shouldn’t be nervous. All we are going to do is
go downtown and making a statement that we want
justice. Once we are done, we’ll come back home. I
won’t let anything happen to you but, if something
breaks out, I need you to look for Victoria and get in
your car and go home. And if something happens to me,
I need you to look for Victoria then go to my house and
warn my peeps.”
As the girls got into my car, Victoria told me I could
march, and chant the same thing they were planning on
saying.
I was missing Leah. This could have been a positive
moment that we could’ve shared together. I was still
hoping she would come to her senses and realize that our
fight from our disagreement was all crazy.
We arrived downtown, and I parked in the garage.
“Why didn’t you park on the streets?” Victoria said.
“My parents always told me to park in the garage so
nothing would happen to my car.”
She laughed at me and said, “Well, you are driving a
Mercedes. I would do the same if I had an expensive
car.”
