Imagine just for a second feeling like no one is on your level
intellectually, emotionally and psychologically for most of your
young life, how would growing up have felt to you? Shaundra has
felt that way ever since she could learn how to read people. This
coming of age tale follows a young African American girl growing up
in a world where she has decided to make her own rules. When
Shaundra was a little girl her mother moved her from south Alabama
where that was the only world she was exposed and where people
accepted her with no questions asked. She and her mother moved to
sunny California where life was unexpected and people were
completely different from how she thought people should be. While
materialistically Shaundra's life couldn't have been any better,
emotionally she is weighed down by her friends, family and her
'love/lust' life. Because she is smarter than the average kids her
age she learns how to deal with the tough situations as they
happen. No adult truly knows how to deal with her because they are
not sure if they're talking to a child or their peer. No one her
age can deal with her 'adult' like attitude, so consequently she
loses friends just by trying to help them. Shaundra is an
opinionated girl. If Shaundra doesn't agree with someone's life
style she will definitely tell them, which is also something that
keeps her friendless most of the time. This is one girl who at a
very young age set out to do only what she wanted to do.
