I first saw Larissa in the yard of our Brooklyn Catholic school: her school-issued plaid skirt rolled up at the waist, her blond hair pulled back and gelled firmly to her head (a look appropriated from the Latino girls), her backpack stamped with a million overlapping graffiti tags drawn in colorful Sharpies. Her facial features were blunt, her eyes greenish and a little wild, and her walk like that of a rare bird—loose-hipped and confident, her ample chest thrust out, leading the way.
