Chapter 8 Summary

At her next meeting with Jazz, Antonia starts to open up a little more about herself. She tells Jazz that Chuckie had gone to the emergency room and how she missed school because of it. Then she mentions Tamra's sister's death. To help her relax a little, Jazz starts to give Antonia a shoulder rub. Antonia goes on to say how Shelley would never have committed suicide. She was happy and normal. Jazz catches the word normal and asks Antonia to define what that means. Antonia answers that she was happy, healthy, had family and friends; she was popular. When Jazz hears this she and Antonia get into a debate over what their definitions of normal are. Jazz ask questions about Antonia's parents, and when Antonia does not answer, comes to the conclusion that her parents are normal, by Jazz's standards.
