Bronx Masquerade By: Nikki Grimes
it was the beginning of the school year and someone brought in a poem and read it. The teacher then decided that every Friday a different person has to come in with a poem and read it to the class
The first Friday, someone brought in a poem but every body thought it was really bad and everyone made fun of him and he got really upset and never wanted to do it again.
Everyone found out that a girl in their grade had a baby and that she was caring for it by herself. She got really annoyed because everyone bugged her about it. Also, everyone was impressed because she still got all of her school work done while still caring for her baby and getting good grades.
