Quotes

  1. “George continued, “hit those books, son, and hit ‘em hard. There’s nothing more powerful in this world than a black man who uses his brain. And fourth, get to know these people. Learn their hobbies, where they come from, and what their parents do for a living. You may never know when it all might come in handy.”” (125).
  2. “”Zach got teased a lot last year, and I guess the power is getting to him. It happens to people sometimes. Even the good ones.” He put a hand on Anthony’s shoulder. “Not you, though. I can tell. You have a strong sense of justice,” Hawley grinned. “So what do you say?”” (121).
  3. “”What’s going on?” “Freshman Brook. That’s whats going on. You better stop these people before I do” He told Hawley what had happened, making sure to mention his roommate’s head and the fact that a few kids had been thrown in twice,” (95).
