When you first read this story it’s difficult to understand what exactly was going on until you reach certain parts of it. When they started mentioning wanting to enter elementary school you can start to understand that the mother wants her daughter to be able to have a much better future than she did. Since we’ve only read the first chapter or the first few pages I would like to ask the author if they were ever able to help their mother. Were they able to overcome the embarrassment they felt and help her learn to read and write as a thank you for enrolling her into school?
