Okay steven I'll take a look in a minute!

1. Big Ma makes Cassie comply because she knows that worse treatment will follow if she doesn’t. Big Ma explains that Cassie knows in her heart what the truth was and the apology should not mean anything to her or her pride.

2.When Mama asks for Stacey's coat to shorten the sleeves, he has to admit that he has lent it to TJ until he grows into it. TJ was making fun of him, calling him preacher because of the way the coat fit. Mama wants him to get it back, but Uncle Hammer tells Stacey that if he is stupid enough to give his coat away, then TJ can keep it permanently; Stacey will not survive in the world if he lets people take things from him.

3. I don't see your last one in my notes. Which chapter was this?


Steven, if you really want answers, and promptly, you will find them by reading the book.
