Plot Summary Part 2

But of course Bea does have options. She can go to one of many food kitchens in her area to get food. She can go on welfare and start getting money from the government. She can go live in a homeless shelter. Instead she chooses to steal from people. We are supposed to feel sorry for her but she is simply (a) dumb and (b) a thief.

Then we meet Allie, a 15 year old girl whose parents get arrested for tax evasion. Allie is sent to a group home where a butch girl named Brick steals her possessions. Allie reclaims her possessions and threatens Brick. Another girl named Jasmine warns Allie that when Brick's boyfriend comes, they will get Allie. They see the boyfriend's motorcycle arriving out front and Allie flees with Jasmine.
