Storyboard Text

  • By Jason Reynolds
  • “Yeah, he was trying to steal those chips!”
  • “F***in’ thugs can’t just do what you’re told. Need to learn to respect authority”
  • One key event that propels to the plot is when Rashad gets arrested for “stealing” a bag of chips and food before going to a party even though he didn’t and the policeman in the store still arrested.
  • Meanwhile?
  • "No, no I --” The Lady was now standing, clearly perplexed by the question. “Yeah, he was trying to steal those chips!” The clerk interrupted, shouting over the cop’s shoulder… “F***in’ thugs can’t just do what you’re told. Need to learn to respect authority”( Jason Reynolds p 21-25).
  • You’re a good kid
  • The world was s***ty, and I didn’t care if that that sounded melodramatic. It was. Yeah, yeah, I was a good kid. A model kid. 
  • This will propel the action of the story since Rashad didn’t know what he did to get arrested but the policeman was racist. This shows how the action will change the story because it shows if he was really stealing and who is telling the truth. And who is guilty. Thus, if the sales clerk was correct then Rashad will have to go to school. This shows how people are racist and have stereotypes of people even though they may not have anything wrong with them.
  • My dad had been the model man: the guy who, when he was on leave, stood there behind the table at St. Mary’s soup kitchen in pressed Class A blue serving ladle of chicken soup he’d helped make
  • Another key event that will propel the plot of the story is that Quinn the other main character of the story, Quinn’s dad died and people knew him because he fought the Iraq war and died but he was a great person and Quinn now needs to go up his footsteps.
  • “You’re a good kid, Quinn,” she told me. I nodded and made my way. That stuff just pissed me off. The world was s***ty, and I didn’t care if that that sounded melodramatic. It was. Yeah, yeah, I was a good kid. A model kid. My dad had been the model man: the guy who, when he was on leave, stood there behind the table at St. Mary’s soup kitchen in pressed Class A blue serving ladle of chicken soup he’d helped make” (p31).
  • This event propels the action because people want Quinn to be like his father. And he is trying to be like his father but his father compared to him, he is not as good and kind like his father was. Thus, this will make Quinn do something bad or try not to be like his father for one and just be himself and take care of himself as well.
