Although she was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family, she married a black man, and then went on the raise all her children as Christians. Although facing adversity for these reasons, James McBride and his siblings still became successful, mostly because of the strength his mother provided for his family. All of the McBride children were put through college by his mother, even though they often struggled with finances. McBride tells how certain events in his everyday life and his background shaped and molded him into who he is today. I believe that in writing this book, McBride is establishing the fact that he is very proud of his success and how his mother was key in helping him accomplish it, but most of all, proud of his mother for being who she was.

Barry Senior’s wife did not make an effort to keep the family together or provide counsel. Sometime all a broken family needs is the gentle touch of a mother. If she had made that effort maybe all the controversy between Barry junior and his sisters would have been prevented.

She was a dedicated mother and her poetry expressed everlasting love for her children.

He demonstrates how daring he can be with the biggest move of all that he makes. He says “’there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on [Katniss] ever since I can remember.’” (Page 130 Collins). The whole crowd is sympathetic because he continues on to admit that “’she came here with me.’” (130).
