Turtle has a very unhealthy relationship with her Mother since she doesn't listen to much unlike her other sister, Angela "Mrs. Wexler was always surprised to see her other daughter, so unlike her golden-haired, angel-faced Angela"(Raskin 10). Turtle obviously is not the favorite of the family.
This is Turtle, the focus of the story
Meet The Wexlers
This Tabitha Ruth Wexler or more popularly known as Turtle. She is a very smart 13 year old girl that also happens to be a bit violent in mostly kicking shins.
Turtle is a very friendly girl and she is very affectionate to others. She made friends with Flora Baumbach and with Sandy Mcsouthers and spends lots of time with them.
Turtle is as said, very violent because when she gets mad, her resort is a mean signature kick to the shin. Above is an example of Turtle kicking Doug Hoo and as shown, it is very scary to see this girl coming at you running preparing for a massive kick.
Turtle is very productive but mostly reads books in the library every sunday. This causes her smartness such as when she understood the clues led to the stock market and bought the stocks that had been pointed to. While this was wrong and later made money from the westing stock and still was the winner of the Westing game in the end.
Turtle was led to buying some stocks with Flora Baumbach and while she found out that it was useless, she still was engaged when she invested in the WESTING PAPER PRODUCTS stock and she had not stopped after years and ended up very happy with the money she earned.
