The 57 Bus: Part 3: Back at Maybeck Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Sasha goes back to school in December. Everyone makes a big deal about their return, and paparazzi and reporters are everywhere. Reporters constantly ask, “Are you Sasha’s friend, can we talk to you?” and it makes some of the students uncomfortable. Sasha goes to Ballroom Dance Club after school and Michael notices that they are quiet, “but overall Sasha seems okay.”
Despite their assault, Sasha tries to return to their normal life, but the press makes this nearly impossible. Sasha is still struggling with their physical injuries, yet the press is more concerned with their nonbinary identity.
