Quote #10

Esperanza's first thought was to pull her hand away and wash it as soon as possible. Then she remembered Mama's kindness to the peasant girl on the train—and her disappointment in Esperanza. She didn't want Silvia to start crying if she were to pull away. She looked around at the dusty camp and thought that it must be hard to stay clean in such a place. (7.65)

Esperanza takes her Mama's lessons to heart. That's a pretty impressive turnaround for a thirteen-year-old girl, don't you think?
