Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Acclaimed author Rita Williams-Garcia gives readers an intimate, gritty portrayal of three very different teens on the day when everything collides. Trina: Hey, I say, though I don't really know them. It's okay if they don't speak. I know how it is. They can't all be Trina. Dominique: Some stupid little flit cuts right between us and is like, Hey. I slam my fist into my other hand because she's as good as jumped. Leticia: Girl fights are ugly. Girl fights are personal. And who's to say I wasn't seeing it from the wrong angle?
