The tulips can be seen to represent the love and concern that other people have for the speaker, for example her family, and that these people are there for her and that she is not alone. However, the speaker then personifies the tulips and describes them as ‘too excitable'. The personification represents the company of people which the speaker dislikes as she ‘didn't want any flowers'. The tulips could also represent the giver's affectionate feelings towards the speaker but she seems to want to get away from these feelings; she does not want to love or be loved, she wants to be left alone.

She says little about humanitarian aid in the first chapter besides how much it’s making her hate her life. The negative description of humanitarian aid work is a bit off-putting, not only to people who opened the book thinking they would be learning about aid work but also to her personality as a character. It’s easily assumable that being an aid worker would be a difficult and trying job. But the way Alexander portrays herself right from the start may make it difficult for reader to sympathize with her.
