Here's the deal: Nora tells us next to nothing about herself. She says she's British, and that's about all we get. How old is she? That's unclear, folks. When did Nora move to America? Sorry Shmoop...
Maricela's in kind of a tough spot. She's a young Mexican gal who feels like lots of people judge her based on her race alone. Plus, she worries that everyone disapproves of the fact that she's a p...
Narrator Amir definitely has a green thumb. By day, he's the manager for a fabric store. But his favorite after-work activity? Working on his part of the community garden, of course. Amir—an Indi...
