Chapter 26

FATIMA

  • At McDonald's, seven days before the hanging, Fatima asks Mik when she will lead the class.
  • "Next time" is the answer she always gives, and this time is no different.
  • Mik shares that the lead guy kind of creeps her out—Fatima thinks he's cool, though.
  • Two cops come in and look at Fatima's headscarf. They aren't interested in arresting her, but Fatima wants to leave all the same.
  • As they walk to the hospital, the girls notice a sign recruiting informants for immigration.
  • Basically, they pay people to rat out illegal immigrants, just like Fatima.
  • Mik rips the sign down.
