內容簡介


57號公車  兩個青少年 兩個世界的真實故事

兩個青少年,一個穿著裙子,一個手上握有打火機。一個念頭,徹底改變兩個人。
故事發生在加州奧克蘭。Sasha,18歲白人青少年,中產階級,就讀私校。
Richard,16歲黑人青少年,住在犯罪率高的社區,就讀公立高中。

每天,他們搭著57號公車上下學,兩人共同在同一班車內的時間大概8分鐘。
某天下午,就在搭車回家的路上,Sasha的衣服起火燃燒,而拿著打火機的正是Richard!
這個案件引起國際注意,引發各種討論,讓兩個青少年的故事攤在陽光下。

One teenager in a skirt.
One teenager with a lighter.
One moment that changes both of their lives forever.

If it weren't for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met. Both were high school students from Oakland, California, one of the most diverse cities in the country, but they inhabited different worlds. Sasha, a white teen, lived in the middle-class foothills and attended a small private school. Richard, a black teen, lived in the crime-plagued flatlands and attended a large public one. Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. The case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight.
