2 Shoulder Partner Review Questions IF you have read this far Little Hobart Street led up into one of those hollows so deep and narrow that people joked you’d had to pipe in the sunlight. (pp. 159-163) Is the parents’ refusal to accept handouts consistent with some of their previous behaviors? Why or why not? What are Jeannette’s fantasies about prostitution? How do they differ from Ginnie Pastor’s reality? Why do you think Ginnie asks Jeannette is she knows how to pick a chicken clean? What does this reveal about both of them? We fought a lot in Welch. (pp. 164-167) What reasons are given for the hardness of life in Welch? What is illustrated by the feud between the Walls and the Goads? Why do you think the author includes this story? As the weather warmed, a sort of rough beauty overtook the hillsides around Little Hobart Street. (pp. 168- 170). Why does the family no longer have the sense of solidarity it had in Battle Mountain? What has changed? Why does Jeannette love the novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn? Why is it getting harder for Jeannette to believe in her father? When Jeannette sews up her father’s wound, what could this suggest symbolically? What cannot be so easily mended in her own life? Dad had taken to disappearing for days at a time. (pp. 171-174). With neither parent working, how does the family survive financially? What were some of the Walls children’s strategies for finding food? What do you think of the Mary’s action of secretly eating chocolate while her children are hungry? What does it reveal about her character? Why does Mary compare her act of eating chocolate to Rex’s drinking? How does Brian react to Mary’s request for forgiveness? Do you think that this is the first time she’s done this? Why or why not? Winter came hard that year. (pp. 175-179) Why don’t the children get angry when Lori isn’t taken to the hospital for her burns? What does Jeannette discover at Carrie Mae Blankenship’s home?
