Hakiam didn't believe the lame sign. He just stopped by to get extra credit for his GED class. He went back the second time because of the girl behind the desk. Even with her rich girl clothes and fancy way of talking...there was something about her.
Wendy couldn't believe the guy's attitude. She volunteered to help guys like him. Where did he get off judging her, making fun of her just because she spoke like an educated person? He might be cute but she could never hook up with someone like him, her father would kill her.
When the lives of these two African American teens cross, sparks fly between them and cause ripples in the relationships with the other people in their lives.
