It's a hot and hazy summer afternoon, mid august to be exact. School is out for the summer and Dredlocks did not get a summer job. She spends most of her day watching T.V. and taking walks around the neighborhood. Dredlocks is sixteen years old, has light brown hair, weighs about 110 pounds, and stands at five feet two inches tall. Her real name is sunshine but every one calls her Dredlocks because she let her hair knot into dreds. The dreds are thick and have grown to the middle of her back.
