In the beginning of the novel, LaVaughn has a flashback to a conversation with her mother she had when she was a child asking, “Can I go to college when I’m big?” Her mom stopped in her tracks and responded: “Nobody in this building... ever went to college, nobody in my family.” Although this response could have dampened Lavaghn’s desire, instead it put her on the path of wanting to prove her mother wrong. If LaVaughn did not have determination and desire to better herself, her mother’s comment could have set LaVaughn on a path of complacency of not wanting to rise above the challenges that her family had of living in poverty.
