Sister tells her story in past tense, and her being a significant participant in the action may alter her memory of what actually happened. Sister points out that she is stressed out by Stella-Rondo’s sudden homecoming. She says, “There I was over the hot stove, trying to stretch two chickens over five people and a completely unexpected child into the bargain, without one moment’s notice.” The irritation of suddenly having to cook for more people than she expected may contribute to how Sister reacts to Stella-Rondo’s comments and how she recounts the incident. The stress and irritation are only added when Stella-Rondo turns Papa-Daddy against her. Sister also points out that she has to prepare the green tomato pickle since “Mama had turned both the niggers loose.” Mama shames Stella-Rondo for making such a dish that will not agree with Uncle Rondo or Shirley-T. At this point Sister feels as if she is being criticized by every family member and can not please anyone.

Once, Jimmy Taylor came walking by us yelling, “Melissa! Whattaya want with that old, fat, Black lady, any ways?” Before I could retaliate, Miss Johnson said to me, “Now, you musn’t, we must feel sorry for that terrible child. His mother must have done gone and not thought him no manners!” She actually wanted me to bow my head and pray for him. (Even though I went to his house and punched him out the next day.) My friends would tease me for spending the whole summer with Sadie Johnson, “The cookoo of Connecticut,” they called her.
Timmy gazed with affection and said, in a soft tone, “Its okay little buddy, I’m here and you are safe.” Butters looked up and still shaken said, “Timmy, I have an idea that may help us find a new place to live.” Timmy stuttered, “The sa-sa secret?” They looked at each other with worried glares over their faces. Timmy’s trust with the adults has diminished since the loss of his sister. After a fight broke out 7 months ago, zombies were attracted to the noise and broke through the fences.

The text states: “His aunt, with an explosive quickness that made me jerk in every nerve, snatched the wooden spoon out of the bowl of batter and hit him across the face. Harvey’s eyes opened a little more, but only a little. (Page 40)” This violent act, and Harvey’s almost nonchalant response, shows that this abuse is regular and has been going on for a long time. Also, how she assumes how Harvey is automatically guilty of stealing the telescope, without even asking him. His life at home is a negative external effect, and would have negative impacts on his attitude and actions.
My Country Mineral Zucchini “Yee-haw,” mimics Fred as I turn on 97.3, and House Party comes on. He honestly makes me want to curl in a ball and die when he tries to make fun of my music with his lame attempts especially when he knows not to talk to me. “Hahahaha,” Paige loudly reacted to Fred 's horrible attempt to make me laugh, I however did not show emotion as I usually do around my family. “Hey no,” I try to defend my taste in music because music has feelings and I take it as my duty to defend those feelings. “Do you like that?” Fred directed this question more at Paige than me, probably because he knows I wouldn 't acknowledge his question.
