Storyboard Text

  • Joe
  • She lives upstairs, over there, next door to Joe the baby-grabber.
  • Esperanza
  • Cathy
  • Corner Store
  • "It's small and red with tight steps in front and windows so small you'd think they were holding their breath. Bricks are crumbling in places, and the front door is so swollen you have to push hard to get in. There is no front yard, only four little elms the city planted by the curb."
  • "Benny and Blanca own the corner store. They're okay except don't lean on the candy counter. Two girls raggedy as rats live across the street."
  • "Earl lives next door in Edna's basement, behind the flower boxes Edna paint some green each year, behind the dusty geraniums."
  • " Until one day Sally's father catches her talking to a boy and the next day she doesn't come to school. ...The way Sally sells it he just went crazy, he just forgot he was her father between the buckle and the belt. " "And then Rafaela, who is still young but getting all from leaning out the window so much, gets locked indoors because her husband is afraid Rafaela run away since she is too beautiful to look at."
  • "Things had a way of disappearing in the garden, as if the garden itself ate them, or, as is with its old man memory, it put them away and forgot them."
  • "We come from Texas, Lucy says and grins. Her was born her but me I'm Texas"
