Who was in the car during the accident? Which friend stayed behind and why? What happened to each of the people in the vehicle?* Describe the friends and their relationships. Robert Washington, Andrew Jackson, B.J. Carson, and Tyrone Mills were in the car (Page 2). Gerald Nickelby stayed behind because his dad is strict and he would get in trouble if he didn’t go straight home. He said, “I got to be gettin’ home. And my old man … you know how he is …” (Page 5).

She sees that he clearly has something wrong, but won’t talk to anyone about it. He can’t hold in his feelings forever, and eventually they will come out. She writes, “What’s your problem, little man,” (Page 67). In B.J.’s poem he is calmly trying to find love. His poem is similar to Andy’s, but not as demanding. He is asking God for a woman to love. Then, in Gerald’s poem, he is just simply trying to get the assignment done. He says that he just can’t write. This shows that each of the students’ poems are different in their own way.
