Turtle, as we learn throughout the story so far, that she hasn't done anything extravagnat. She hasn't cried, or complained about anything. She keeps quiet and to herself. Some people are like this, they strive to pass by unnoticed, they're the kids that wish and hope they don't get chosen to answer a question in class. This quote fits her perfectly because she hasn't made a show of herself in the story. She tries to slide into the background.
