Deena Misses Her Mom
by Jesse Holmes and Kahliya Ruffin and Leslie Pyo




Overview -

Lately, Deena has been getting angry. A lot. She acts out in school and keeps getting in trouble. Everyone is surprised because she used to be very calm, but that was before her mother went to jail. Her dad, her grandma, and her best friend Josey all do their best to help her out, but Deena doesn't want to talk about it. Will a day at the carnival with her Dad help her open up?
