Quote #10

Rowdy and I played one-on-one for hours. We played until dark. We played until the streetlights lit up the court. We played until the bats swooped down at our heads. We played until the moon was huge and golden and perfect in the dark sky.

We didn't keep score. (30.201-30.202)

As the novel concludes, Rowdy and Junior are no longer enemies. They are more like friends. Still, can things ever be the same between the two of them? What do you think will happen to Arnold after high school? What about Rowdy?
