What road can you choose after foster care? Does it matter?
Derek: If my own parents don’t care, no one else will. Nate’s the smart one; I’m the family problem that Mom wants to send to the nuthouse. Why do they expect me to get passing grades when my big decision is whether to keep living?
Nate: That judge has no reason to take a kid away from a job when he’s taking care of himself. I don’t need no high school diploma and if I can figure out how to cover my tracks, I’ll be back with Angie and we’ll set up a real home together.
