Literature Circle Ms. Berrisford


The main character in this book is Steve being labelled as a criminal in a local robbery. I believe Steve did not have the intention of the outcome that followed. He seems to be lost in this mess and not sure where it is going to lead him. "The best time to cry is at night, when the lights are out and someone is being beaten up and screaming for help." (page 1) "There is mirror over the steel sink in my cell. It's 6 inches high, and scratched with the names of some guys who were here before me. When I look into the small rectangle I see a face looking back at me, but I don't recognize." (Page  1)

I believe Ms. Petrocelli is going cause conflict for Steve in the case as she is the prosecutor. "There is no doubt in my mind, and I believe by the end of the trial there will be little doubt in yours, that these 2 men were all part of the robbery that caused the death of Alguinaldo Nesbitt." (page 25)
