I think that Steve is guilty because he couldn't make eye contact with his mom when the cops came to get him to take him down to ask him a few questions. When he was telling his lawyer after he went to the store to just look around when he was walking home he was thinking about what just happened to the clerk. That shows he feels guilty about what happened, he did it. Steve was in on the robbery. They planned the robbery but they didn't plan the murder so he was feeling guilty about killing the clerk. Steve wasn't telling the truth when he was saying he didn't do nothing.

If I got out of jail in 21 years and 3 months from now it would be 2031. I would be 37 years old. I think the technology would be very different, cars, laws, and presidents. I think my life would be very difficult. I wouldn't be able to get a job very easily. I probably wouldn't have many friends anymore. My family would probably be very disappointed and not want to be around me much. I would be very confused on what's going on with technology and everything that has changed. I would feel like an outsider.

I read The Pact by Jodi Picoult. The Pact is a love story with a twist. The main character is Chris Harte. The book is about how Chris Harte and Emily Gold grew up together, how Emily's suicide committing changes everything.
It switches point of views, it goes from Chris to Chris's mom Melanie and to his dad James. It also goes from Emily to her mom and dad.
Two devastated families that don't know what really happened that night. The major conflict in the story is Emily didn’t want to move ahead in time, she didn’t want anything with her and Chris to change. She wanted to put the world on pause.
I loved the book because it's like a love book with a twist of mystery in it. There are some parts that make you cry, others that make you laugh, and some parts surprise you. I could hardly put it down. I think more teenage girls would like this book more then anybody else.
"You don’t love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not"
"He began to trace a pattern on the table with the nail of his thumb. "She kept saying she wanted to keep things exactly the way they were, and that she wished she could stop everything from changing. She got really nervous, like, talking about the future. She once told me that she could see herself now, and she could also see the kind of life she wanted to have - kids, husband, suburbs, you know - but she couldn't figure out how to get from point A to point B."

I learned from Ghetto Life 101 that the ghetto has changed for the worst, it's depressing. A lot of people die for no reason if they live in the ghetto, one girl had between twenty and thirty friends that got killed because somebody just wanted to kill them. Eric Morse was dropped from a fourteen story building window because he wouldn't steal candy for some boys. He was only five years old and the other boys were ten and eleven. I think that the ghetto wouldn't be a very nice place to live because a lot of people are unsafe, you never know when you'd get shot or have a drive by. Some people that live there might be just like us, liking to go out and hang out with friends and have a good time, but other people might be way different and rob stores and do drive byes for fun. I think the ghetto life wouldn't be the best place for white people to live because some black people have never seen white people in their life and they might be racist.
