So Done

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Paula Chase

When best friends Tai and Mila are re­united af­ter a sum­mer apart, their friend­ship threat­ens to com­bust from the pres­sure of secrets, mid­dle school, and the loom­ing dance auditions for a new tal­ented-and-gifted pro­gramme.

Fans of Renée Wat­son’s Piec­ing Me To­gether will love this mem­o­rable story about a com­plex friend­ship be­tween two very dif­fer­ent African Amer­i­can girls—and the im­por­tance of speak­ing up.

Jamila Phillips and Tai John­son have been in­sep­a­ra­ble since they were tod­dlers, hav­ing grown up across the street from each other in Pi­rates Cove, a low-in­come hous­ing project.
