Quote and Theme

¨Man, I can,t believe you're moving to California tomorrow.¨ This quote is important because it tells you the theme. It tells you what is going to happen in the story and you only have to barley read the first page. It tells you that Darrell is moving and how his friend Malik is bummed by how he is moving.
