Our Friendship Matters

by Kimberley B. Jones


GENRE: Young Adult



Leah and Sasha are 17-year-old friends who had been close to one another since elementary school, but as the summer approaches they find their friendship tested in ways they never anticipated.

Following graduation, Sasha’s privileged life and perception of the world around her is suddenly altered when an old childhood friend persuades her to join in a campaign against an injustice after his best friend is killed by a cop.

But joining the protest has unforeseen consequences for Sasha, distancing her from Leah, who becomes jealous of Sasha’s new friends and finds herself on the opposing side, protesting alongside her group of new white friends.

As the tension mounts between the two bitterly opposed factions, a tragedy strikes and threatens to make Sasha and Leah enemies. Can they find a way to resolve their differences, putting them to the side and learn to accept each other’s viewpoints? Or is their long friendship finished for good?



Rashad was lying in the bed with a patch over one eye and dressed in a hospital gown. The kind that tied in the back and showed your butt unless you squeezed the gown with your hands from the back (which I, personally, think should be the front). I pitied him. You know that moment when you want to cry but you have to be strong for that person, just to not make them feel bad.

“You know, you are the only person who has been here to see me other than my mom sneaking me three meals a day. She said the hospital food isn’t nothing but plastic.”

I was shocked. “Wow, you haven’t talked to anyone, not even Ricardo?”

“Well, Victoria called, but only you came to see me. She said she was coming tomorrow.”

“I do know they were here the night it happened. Well, I’m glad you are moving around and talking. If you don’t mind me asking, do you know who did this to you or anything that happened that night?”

“No, but I think I have a clue.”

“What makes you say that?”

“Well, if you don’t already know, we haven’t been just protesting. We’ve been going at it with the white kids in Frontenac.”

“Yeah. One day, I overheard Victoria talking to Ricardo when we were leaving the mall, and that would explain the cops stopping me twice on the way to Ricardo’s. That’s when I backed off a little because I didn’t want to get in any trouble.”
