And then something happens, something that you had ceased to dream was possible. You hear someone call "Man on the floor," and a man walks down the hall with a list of people to see the commissioner, and he calls your name. You are so shocked you don't say anything for a moment, but the other girls bang on the glass and yell, "She's over here." And you are not the only one. Sammy, Malika, Allison, Tanisha, Estelle, and the woman with the long rap sheet are coming too. When the guard opens the door of the cell, bags of uncollected lunch and dinner trash spill out into the hall. She kicks them back into the cell, but you don't care, because you are going to see the commissioner.
