Don't miss this veryspecial After School Kung Fu, er, uh...Special?Meanwhile, Saturdaynight's the big dance and Jesse doesn't want to go!
Is love in the air?No. STREET ANGEL AFTER SCHOOL KUNG FU SPECIAL centers around Jessica"Street Angel" Sanchez, who is no stranger to battling forces that you thinkwould be beyond her control. There's still the pesky matter of having a regularlife, having to go to school and contend with friends that want her to go to anafter school dance. They mean well, but there is another little matter of ashowdown with the Ninja Kid to attend to after school that may change things.
It's pretty clear that Van Buren Middle School is not ordinary school, but yetthere is a very familiar feel to this story. I don't want to spoil any of thedetails, but you do get to see a couple of different sides to Jessica. Afterthe fight happens (which isn't a spoiler, because it wouldn't be a Kung FuSpecial without one), things kind of take a turn from there. What we end upwith is something quite unexpected, and yet, should leave you smiling at theend.
