Songs Best friend by: 50 Cent I think this song because they are best friends and they do alot together and this song explains how they are like. Basketball by: Bow Wow I think this song is an important song for this book. They are stars of the basketball and this song is about basketball. You're a Star by: Huey Mack I think this is also important to the story because they are both stars of the team. this songs talk about rough times and Eddie and Marcus had some rough times. The Start The setting of this book is at a park in Long Island. They look at the people who they could rob and who looks easy or not but one night it all goes wrong. They are on the run and trying to hide when a robbery goes bad for them. I learned from this story was a lot. Times like this must me really hard. They should of never went to rob people, but they did what they had to do. They also shouldn't of spent their money on the pair of shoes that everyone got. They should have just asked their parents for the money and tell them the truth but now they are behind bars. The overall theme is not taking a short way in life and robbing people for people. The Killing Eddie and Marcus robbed a white lady for 92 dollars and took a brand new walkman from her. They then robbed a black male in back of a market store. They got 129 dollars and about 4 dollars in change. Eddie and Marcus thought that they were pros at robbing people after the second time. After the second robbery, they made their money for their dues. Resolution This book was a good one. I am into basketball and things like this. If you are into these kinds of things I would think you would like this book. It catches you right after you read the first chapter. This story was well written by a great author. My favorite part of the book is when Eddie turned himself in and not letting his best friend getting all the blame for it. I just thought that was really nice of him and to show that he really is his best friend. The first main event in this story is that they are stars on the basketball team and a lot of colleges are looking at these two and are also welling to assign both of them. They need money for their dues. A due is that they could do things such as go on field trips, basketball, graduate, and other school related things. They spent their money on a new band of shoes that just came out. Eddie's dad has a gun and they choose to take in out one night and rob people for money for there dues and then they would stop robbing people.

Transcript: Points of Interest For Discussion What is the point: Cinematography/ mise en scene Leitmotif History/ Colonial Ideology Identity What is the significance of Diouana asking for the mask back? Langford argues that we can use these systems to determine the identities of colonial and post-colonial subjects. Looking at the characters, do you agree? Are there any moments when characters move from one economic system to another? How can we interpret the last scene, when Monsieur returns the mask?
