1. Why does Mami hit Ana Rosa? I don’t want to know the words Ana Rosa said, I want to know the deeper reason behind why you think Mami hit Ana Rosa on wash day? Did Ana Rosa deserve some sort of punishment?
2. Why does Mami call Guario, Jefe? What exactly is he the boss of? Who would be the Jefe in your family and why?
3. What does Ana Rosa mean when she says “the whole world tilted for the first time away from me”? Why is it different this time when Guario says he wants a future? How would you describe the relationship between Ana Rosa and her brother? Do you have a relationship like this with anyone?
