  • Sally is a beautiful girl who goes to Esperanza's school. Her father is very strictly religious, and won't let Sally go out.
  • Sally wears makeup and sophisticated black clothes. Esperanza wants to be like her.
  • Sally used to be best friends with Cheryl, until the day Cheryl called her a name and the girls got in a fight.
  • The boys tell stories about Sally in the coatroom, but Esperanza doesn't believe them.
  • Sally always goes straight home after school, pulling off her makeup and pulling down her skirt.
