Chapter 32: A Time to Sow

  • Genet and Rosina come back, Genet looking and acting all grown up.
  • Marion tells Genet about the visit with the probationer, and he tells her that he waited because he wanted his first time to be with her. She holds his face in her hands, but Rosina catches them and interrupts them.
  • Marion hears the song he heard in the probationer's room on the radio, and everyone starts dancing to rock and roll on a regular basis.
  • The family goes to a party, and Shiva dances with everybody. Marion goes home early.
