Teesha and Keeba have finally
graduated from high school. Well, it took them a few extra years
to do it but they did it. Now what? A few of their friends
from the projects have gone on to college. One even hit it big doing
television commercials. But the Washington sisters have no direction.
No idea what will happen to them. But when the local librarian gives
them an idea, things begin to change. At first, the girls just laugh
at the idea. When they really think about it, hope sets in.
Can they really pull it off? Can two teens from the projects open
their own business?
The Washington sisters, Keeba
and Teesha, have just graduated high school at last! After celebrating
with a party their mother didnít know about, itís time to think about what
they want to do with their lives. Their best friend, Aisha, is starring
in TV commercials; another good friend, Raven, is going to college. Enter
Skye March, the librarian who has moved from her condo to live in the projects.
Skye suggests that Keeba and Teesha set up a shop doing something they
have done for their neighbors: braiding hair. Will TeeKeeís Tresses make
it? (Melissa Bowman, Melissa.Bowman@pisd.edu, Armstrong Middle School)
