Pg(114) The kids fight over what crops to grow and how to get the seeds.

Pg(116) The kids have to destroy their grass because the building owner made them. All their hard work is wasted.

Pg(117) T.J. goes missing for 2 weeks. He was heading back home to the South. Setting as Antagonist T.J. was calm and laid back but when he had to destroy what he grew he became defensive and angry. " They ain't gonna touch my earth, he said fiercely."
