At the beginning of the novel, Turtle would be described as catatonic..... like she existed out of this world, unable to respond or speak...... she simply wanted to remain unnoticed. As the novel progresses, she blossoms in Taylor's care. The more she learns to trust, the more she talks. The more she's loved, the more affectionate she becomes.
