To add on, in Chapter 7, Jeremy comes over to the Logan 's House on Christmas Evening. Jeremy proceeds to give Stacey a flute, that Stacey accepts awkwardly. After Jeremy leaves, Stacey asks Papa why Jeremy gave him the flute, and that he gave Jeremy nothing.
In the novel Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Stacey’s perspective of friendship with T.J. and Jeremy is unique and this affects the decisions he makes in Chapter 7. Stacey allows T.J. to do almost anything around him, even though T.J. is rude and naughty. But, T.J. is still Stacey’s best friend. Stacey is pretty rude to Jeremy even though Jeremy is super nice to the Logans and T.J.’s family. Stacey’s friendship with these two boys are very different.

However, because it was his own grandmother, the reader might believe that she supported Jeremy out of love, rather than because she thought what he did was right.
