Life is going to be hard for everyone at some point but we can¿t just give up and give in. Another story is, about a girl who is black in a relationship with a boy who is Puerto Rican. She has to deal with racial slurs and pressure from other there different racial backgrounds. She has to learn that she can¿t let other people influence the way she feels about her boyfriend.
