1. In the chapter about Mattie, Etta had left home for New York to find a man to take care of her. Why is she now coming to Brewster Place? Has she learned anything during her separation from Mattie?

2.   Do you think that Etta Mae really needs a man to take care of her? Explain your answer using evidence from the text.

3. What do the song lyrics throughout this chapter convey about Etta’s life and attitudes? Select one lyric to analyze in relation to Etta Mae’s character traits (The song lyrics are indented throughout the chapter).

4. What kind of game does Etta play with Reverend Woods? Why does she think she will be successful? Why isn’t she?

5.  Who would you rather be friends with Mattie Michael or Etta Mae Johnson? Explain your choice using evidence from the text.

6. “Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over” (Naylor, 70). In this quote, Mattie pretty much predicts what will happen to Etta and Reverend Woods, but does not judge her.


Thinking about the quote above, how do our relationships (love, friends, family) help define us? Do you have a person in your life that helps you be the best version of yourself? Explain.
