Throughout the rest of the novel, Holden reminisces about Jane and is often tempted to call her and go on a date with her but often finds excuses not to call her.

She claims to have slept with her psychiatrist, but she also claims to be a compulsive liar and, later, still a virgin. In fact, for most of the day, she chooses to remain silent, observing the others but keeping to her own world. When she finally does speak, the first thing she says is to tell Andy that she drinks heavily. Later, however, when the others smoke pot, she is the only one to abstain.

Also in the beginning the author gives some glimpse into what the main characters are like. The story portrays Mami as a peacemaker and someone who tries to avoid conflict. Yunior’s brother Rafa seems to have similar interests as Yunior because of the comment about them not wanting to go to the party but rather be outside playing ball with the other kids. Rafa also seems to be someone who would rather get out of the way then to stick up for Yunior to Papi.
