For example Carmen comes home feeling hurt, betrayal, anger and shame by her father as he now has a new family and she turns immediately to Tibby for comfort and advice. Tibby's friendship with Bailey, a young girl with leukemia, reinforces the feelings she has for the Sisterhood, because her death shows Tibby how important the small pleasures she gave to others while alive can be emulated when she is within the Sisterhood. Bridget learned when Lena organized the girls to come to her aid even when she was in Greece that no matter how big the problem may seem, there is always someone you love to catch you when you fall.

The book is the story of Enrique, a Honduran boy whose mother, Lourdes, was abandoned by her children’s father and who made the difficult choice to leave her eight-year-old daughter and five-year old son to come north. Nazario gives us a view inside the most difficult choice a mother can make: whether to abandon her children to the care of relatives in order to be able to provide a better life for him. The powerful economic forces of globalization in the developing world boil down, for Lourdes, to the simple choice of whether she can continue to tell her children to lay on their stomachs, because that way they can fall asleep in spite of their hunger pangs. And yet, Nazario gets us to fully appreciate the human costs of the decision to come North for the family members left behind. While Enrique has shoes and the ability to attend school, which his mother could not have afforded to give him if she had stayed, he feels the constant loneliness for his mother’s love and is shuttled from relative to relative as he begins to act out, drops of school, and turns to glue-sniffing.

On the oppose side of the marital spectrum, Zeena regularly professes her hypochondria to her husband. However, in response to the sledding accident, she “seemed to be raised right up just when the call came to her” (Wharton 131).
