Some passages about me.
This passage shows that Turtle is not as closed up as I seem to be. Plus, I kind of like that elderly dressmaker.
“What is Turtle’s real name?” Doug Hoo was planning another nasty sign. “Tabitha-Ruth,” replied Mrs. Wexler with a bewildered look at Flora Baumbach, who said “Alice.” “Well, which is it?” “Tabitha-Ruth Wexler. I should know, I’m her mother.” Doug changed his mind about the sign. He couldn’t spell Tabitha-Ruth. ( page 67)
This blurb shows that I was lying to Flora, which means I don't trust her. I don't even trust her enough to tell her my real name! Or is Alice my real name? I am certainly not ready to tell anyone my real name, but they know it now. Well, they still have to call me Turtle.
I Only let a few people touch my braid... I only change that rule for some people
I love it when Baba calls me Alice. It makes me feel like Baba is my mom, the loving, caring mom I never had. I get kind of jittery when she talks about Rosalie because I don't know what do to. I do not know whether to comfort her or to insist that she has me now. I want to kick someone good and hard. That's the only way I can get out my anger. I can't cope with this, it makes me feel uncomfortable
My first symbol is a bruise because I give a lot of bruises to tenants of Sunset Towers.
My next symbol is a braid because that is what I love to wear- or used to wear. After the third bombing, my hair got burned and had to get cut off.
My last symbol
For my last symbol, I used a shin. It used to be that when you pulled my braid, I would kick in the shin really hard. In fact, some people would stay away from me in fear that I would kick them.
