At Ballou, Cedric has almost friends. He eats lunch in a classroom most days, plowing through the extra work he has asked for, kwing that he s really competing with kids from other, harder schools. Cedric Jennings s driving ambition which is fully supported by his forceful mother is to attend a top-flight college.
