  • Late in the night, when Lizabeth overhears her parents talikng. Her father was crying and her mother comforting him, Lizabeth feels the roles of her parents have been reversed and doesn't know what to do. She panics and wakes up Joey, then begins to sneak out of the house To Miss Lottie's garden where she destroys all the marigolds out of anger, she then realizes this was her last act as a child. "That violent , crazy act was the last act of childhood." (Lines 353-354)
