It's Afeni's 12th birthday and her mom is waking her up so she can get ready for the big day!
It's the greatest! Thanks!
Afeni called her dad who lives in Colorado. He was out of sorts and thought she was 13. Afeni misses her dad but was a little upset with him when this happened.
As Afeni's mom drove her to school ,she tells Afeni they are taking in a 15-year-old pregnant teen. Afeni does not want her in their home. They got in a huge argument and Afeni did not leave the car on a good word.
When you die... The pieces of you get all separated.
Their great friend Marion came over to celebrate. She got Afeni a sweater and jeans. She is also part of the pregnant teen idea which, Afeni did not know.
At dinner time, the subject of the pregnant teen was brought up again. Afeni got angry and ran to her room. Afeni's mom wanted to give the pregnant girl Afeni's grandma's room but Afeni didn't want to let go of her grandma yet.
Afeni snuck into her grandma's room and sat there crying all night. She was talking to her grandma and remembering times with her. She stayed there until she fell asleep.
