Storyboard Description

In this scene Ishmael went to live with his uncle permanently . He recently just came from the rehabilitation center. He was nervous coming to his uncle's because his uncle and aunt are the only ones that know he was a child solider, so he can't be fully honest with his cousins. His oldest cousin, Allie , took him to a club and Ishmael met a girl named Zainab while he was there. I selected this scene because it really emphasizes Ishmael trying to cope in the situation he is in. In chapter 19, he says" i was worried about living with a family. I had been on my own for years and had taken care of myself without any guidance from anyone ." pg.179
