The way he said this to Tasha makes her have this sense of false hope in that her parents are not separated, they are just “living apart.” This quickly unfolds at school when one of the girls loses a game to Tasha and says “I just let you win because my mother told me that everyone is suppost to be nice to you because your parents are getting separated and everything.” (p.7) This confuses Tasha, and makes her question what her father and mother said to her and if they were telling her the truth or not. In the second part of the book the lies are not as apparent as the lies are in part one and in part three. In part two the lies are more a cove up of what is really happening in this family’s life. Such as Rodney’s mother, who feels that lying to herself about her family’s social class makes her look better as a person. This is evident when Rodney says “Never mind that the shoe box she chose to make your sister’s diorama conspicuously bears the label of her only Italian pumps.”(p.88) She is trying to make herself feel better

Momma feels that she is an uneducated person, she says "I never had an education myself," (157) this creates barriers between her and her daughter Dee who has a college education. She describes herself as "big-boned woman with rough, man-working hands" (157) that wears overalls by day and flannel gowns by night.

I think it’s because Dee went off to college so it created a new perspective on life for her, and Maggie on the other hand stayed home, with burned body and no education, so she learned the simple things in life like quilting and farming from her ancestors. Reading this story from momma's point of view creates the feeling that the story is told from a genuine point of view with no biased feeling toward anyone, just the truth.
