Esperanza calls out, shouting, “Sally, make him stop”, but her friend ignores her pleas (Cisneros 123). The man distracted Sally, resulting in her friend being scarred beyond all measure. The men overpowered Sally’s mind, causing her to fail her duty as a womanly protector. In addition, Esperanza places full blame on Sally because she “never came for [her]”, breaking her promise to return to Esperanza's side (Cisneros 123). Esperanza relies on Sally to protect her from the dangers in her community that she cannot face herself, and Sally’s renege left her truly defenseless.
A bit further into the story, Zeena kicks Mattie out from their house. I was surprised that Ethan would technically cheat on his ill wife with his sister-in-law. The fact that he was thinking about running away with Mattie shows his unfaithfulness to Zeena. The most surprising fact was that even after all that had occurred, they all still end up living
Instead of protecting her daughter, Marie blinded Sara as she now has an unrealistic view of the world. Furthermore, to show how important exposure is at a young age, the episode ends with Sara beating up her mother because she is continuing to be too controlling and then walks the street until she gets into a stranger's trailer. Had she been exposed to things as a child, Sara would know better than to get into stranger's vehicles. She literally does the worse thing we are told not to do, get in a stranger's
A small figure has appeared on the table in front of her, right between the dinner plate and the water glass.” I used this quote because it made the story.Without the fairy coming there would be nothing to carry on the story with. Also, this part of the story made me want to read more due to the fact that a fairy godmother actually appeared. This was the turning point of the story.
This happens to everyone, and is part of growing up. When Harry sees Wayne Barlow and Miss Spencer together, Harry, without thinking, ‘pick[s] up a rock, hurl[s] it blind[ly], turn[s] and run[s].’ Harry and the readers discover that Miss Spencer consequently becomes pregnant, and leaves Harry’s town forever, ‘the taxi taking away the only good thing left in town.’ Harry is blinded by jealous and hatred and ‘spends all night thinking of Miss Spencer and hating Wayne Barlow forever.’ Near the end of the novel Harry shows maturity when he admits to Johnny: ‘I’ve given the Barlow’s a few of those [rocks] before.’ To do this shows courage and understanding of himself.

Zaina’s homecoming was a huge event for the family. They did not know what to expect. They had no one to advise them on how to act, what to say, how to make their mother feel at home. They were hoping to compensate for the time they had lost while she was away. They had experienced trauma throughout the years their mother was gone; nonetheless, they figured that their mother must have experienced a trauma that was far beyond their own.
Sylvia thought her Gran was afraid of the children swinging to high, or the water that was being shot out of the ground. Neither of those were the cause of the frown. Gran had an idea of what “dirt” might be lying underneath the glitter of “The Rich People’s School.” Before dropping her off, her grandmother offered her a piece of advice, telling her to behave, in a ton of voice that Sylvia did not recognize. She was left at school “wondering how her Gran could be so frightened and angry when everything looked so lovely” (Kubitsile 48). Soon after, the loveliness faded as Sylvia noticed a group of children congregating and gaping at her, the only similarity apparent between them was the schools uniform.
