I was never officially put into the system or foster care, however I relate to Spark and Flame because when my parents hurt me, I found solace in the arms of another caring mother-figure. Like Serena, my new mom helped me understand the situation and my emotions, and she helped me learn how to cope with them. I relate to Spark because he encounters confusion when it comes to loving his abusive mum and my emotional unease is similar to
Esperanza thinks Nenny is a drag because on page three, she says,” Nenny is too young to be my friend. She's just my sister and that was not my fault. You don't pick your sisters, you just get them and sometimes they come like Nenny.” Today, most of the older siblings in families do not like their younger siblings, but they understand you can’t pick what type of sibling you want in life. She also compares the bond that she shares with Nenny to Rachel and Lucy. Esperanza didn’t understand why family is so important, until about on page twenty-three her aunt died and on page twenty-two, it says “Your abuelito is dead, Papa says early one morning in my room.

Throughout the story at first it was kinda hard to understand the story in the beginning but I kinda caught on in the middle of the story and the ending when she dropped that bomb. I just wished that the author could have kept going so I can see what Mrs. Slade reaction was to the whole thing. I can’t really say much about the daughters because they were never really mentioned in the story. All I know is the mother said and that was jenny was like the perfect daughter and jenny was the type of person who looked after her mother instead of mother looking out for her. Babs on the other hand was very smart, intelligent and was she looked very like her mother when she was her age.
Similarly, through Sara is a wife to Brain, her relationship to him is also revolve around Kate. She struggles to talk to Brian about anything other than Kate, for instance Sara focuses mostly on her physical, rather than emotional, health.

Though this phrase is not meant to be cynical, it makes me feel like I am foolish and that my family couldn’t think of adjectives indicating intelligence.
Abita was a young, black, strong willed, and intelligent 17 year old girl who knew exactly what she wanted in life. She was underestimated by many because people thought she was just simply to young to make any impact on society. Her mother was a waitress who sometimes could barely make ends meet.

Abita’s father wasn 't in the picture, she didn’t even know whether he was dead or alive, she could see the pain that lingered in her mom 's chocolate brown eyes when her younger sisters would talk about him.
