Chapter Summaries & Analyses

Chapter 25 Summary: “Bunny”

At basketball practice, Bunny ruminates on his decision to attend St. Sebastian’s and reflects on his rift with Nasir. He questions whether his motives for leaving Whitman were purely about helping his family or if Nasir was right to accuse him of being selfish. He also reflects on his alienation at St. Sebastian’s since the students are almost all wealthy and white and Bunny is Black and has a working-class background. However, he believes that even if he transferred back to Whitman, his peers would still resent him. He notes that after their last fight, Nasir sent him an apology text and asked him to meet at Word Up.

Bunny gets an idea about how to solve his problems and asks to speak to the coach.

Chapter 26 Summary: “Nasir”

Nasir meets Bunny at Word Up. They proceed to the roof, where Nasir apologizes to Bunny, although internally, he admits that he doesn’t mean it. Bunny confesses that Nasir was right in some of his accusations and tells him that he asked his coach if the school could arrange for Nasir to transfer to St. Sebastian’s on a scholarship. Nasir is stunned by the offer, and Bunny tells him to take a few days to think it over.
