Bastard Out of Carolina
"It was a hunger in the back of the throat, not the belly, an echoing emptiness that ached for the release of screaming."
She is the mother of Honey. She has patience but can sometimes be strict. She has her values and sticks to them. She doesn't want her daughter to make the same mistakes. She tries her hardest to support her family and give them a good life. I think she is a really good mom with good values.
She is a girl and her mom is mama, the story doesn't say her real name this is what the shop owner calls her. She wants to be good but also wants what the other kids have. She starts to question herself in the story. Thinking about the feelings of taking the candy and comparing herself to her cousin. She is a great person but is a young girl finding herself.
