Bad ➰Michael Jackson
I never wanted you to be bad.
Enter Shaka Zuree: a normal Somalian girl residing in New York, New York. Now meet her friends Maximillian Cooper, Arnold Weathers and Mike Jones. They live in New York too, although they originally were birthed there and haven't been anywhere out the country like she has. Now cue the entrance of Daryl White, whom a previous stranger, enters into the scene abruptly and without any warning. Amidst the rising tension between her three friends and Daryl, a companion ship quickly forms between Shaka and him as they both attempt to navigate the dangerous streets of Brooklyn. A series of events draws them closer while circumstances sets them apart. Going to two different high schools seems like a hefty task to try and preserve their newfound relations, but they attempt and succeed. Only one thing stands between them.
Shaka doesn't know what she wants to do after she is free from school, yet Daryl knows exactly what path he wants to take - and it isn't in New York. Letting go of some one she has grown to admire and care about wasn't something she is comfortable with but ultimately it isn't her decision to make. All she can do is hold onto Max, Arnold and Mike and pray that Daryl won't forget her.
