The Bluest Eye Summer, Chapter 10 Summary

  • In the summer, Frieda and Claudia sell marigold seeds to save up for a new bike.
  • Through gossip, the sisters learn that Pecola is pregnant with her father's child. They feel sympathy toward her and they're bummed that no one else in Lorain seems to care.
  • Frieda and Claudia decide to bury their marigold money and plant marigolds for Pecola. They think that if their flowers bloom, Pecola's baby will live. Claudia sings over the seeds, while Frieda says the magic words.
