True Believer by Virginia Wolff
LaVaughn is an intelligent girl that is trying to get by her everyday routine of metal detectors at school in a rough neighborhood. Her father passed away when she was a young age, and she lives with her mother. She has made a decision to leave this place and be the first to go to college, while she baby-sits two children for money. If her grades slip, she will not be able to go to college. While her two childhood best friends, Myrtle and Annie are becoming more distant and closer to God, she ends up falling in love with her friend Jody.
LaVaughn is a girl who is trying to understand and figure out her life. While she writes in free verse, she explains all her thoughts and emotions in simplicity.
