Each member have a chapter exclusively devoted to them. In their sections they each support the reasons that each girl, in their own way, gives an explanation of who they have become and of why they “'turned out' the way they have." After overcoming my early difficulties with the reverse order that the story was written and having to read and reread several paragraphs and sections to figure out that the narrator changed I did find the story to be interesting. I can only imagine how difficult it was for the girls to go through the process of immigration to the United States in such a time of sexual and political

In the story ‘’So I Ain’t No Good Girl” written by Sharon Flake a good realistic scene is set by the author that connects me when the situation is put into all of the characters actions. In my opinion I feel like the story isn’t enough because the author didn’t give enough information to the characters feelings and thoughts on how they felt or what they like to do and what they want to do.
