Starr, with two r's. Starr went to a party that she didn't even want to be at or wasn't allowed to be at. Her friend, Kenya also the girl she share a brother with dragged her to this party, but left her shortly afterwards. Starr sees an old friend, that she hasn't seen in over a year.
Her old friend is named Khalil went up to Starr for a little but very unexpected reunion. After talking for a little, they hear an argument going on not to far from them, then not long after that argument there were gun shots in the background. Which caused Khalil and Starr to run off to Khalil's car.
Driving not to far from the shoot out at the party, Khalil and Starr get pulled over by a cop. Starr was taught that if a cop pulls you over one you put your hands up, don't speak unless your spoken to, and don't make any sudden moves. But when the officer asked Khalil to get out the car, he dd not do any of those rules. When Khalil went back to the car and reached in the window for his hairbrush, thats when it happen. Khalili got shot by the cop.
The grand Jury decides that the police officer should not be punished for his actions. Once the protest for Khalil heard about this they immediately started causing trouble, the police and theS.W.A.T team was there blocking the streets preventing them from passing. Telling everyone repeatedly to leave or there will be consequences. Starr has her chance now to defend Khalil and she didn't, but that didn't change the police and the S.W.A.T teams mind and continued to run everyone away.
After everything that Starr has been through she decided that defending Khalil and everyone at the bottom was a good thing and was worth the fight. Even if some people disagree with Starr they will soon what she meant and why she meant it. Starr know that she will never forget Khalil and what she did for him.
