I know that Frita is intimidating and a good example of when Frita is intimidating is on page 80 where it says Frita orders Gabe to go and he doesn’t even think about defying her and does what he is told. This proves he is intimidating because like I said before he didn’t think about saying “No!” or fighting back but instead he just went with because he knew he couldn’t win in an argument. There is actually two examples to go with that because just a minute after she says that the Evans get out of their truck and Duke glared at her and she glared right back! This would be intimidating because Duke knows she can beat him up.
The next thing I will talk about is when Frita shows just how intimidating she can be while her Gabe,Duke and Frankie are all at the moving up day ceremony and both Duke and Gabe take a beating!
While at the moving up day ceremony and Frita and Gabe finished a long conversation about school and what they are going to do about Gabes fear of it, Frita is long gone shaking with excitement while she waited in line to get her certificate, Duke and Frankie pay Gabe a visit. They tie and beat him up and leave him under a picnic table! After Frita finds out she unties Gabe grabs his arm and searches for Duke in the ocean of children and when she spotted him in the crowed she let go of Gabe and darted towards Duke and punched him in the nose! This would definitely both intimidate and embarrass Duke because probably the toughest girl he knows marched towards him and punched him in the nose! It would be embarrassing because back then people were racist and he just got beat up by a little black girl.
