As the reading has started to come to a close, things are really starting to heat up. I was so surprised and dumbfounded when Patrice just decides to run back to Boston after the party in New Hampshire. I like this part though, because she never really belonged in New Hampshire and things make more sense with her living with Dot and Taj in Boston. She also seems a lot happier living with Dot, because she no longer has to live a lie.
Also, I never thought she was actually going to go and find her father and her sister, but now that she got the information on where they are from Ronnie, it seems as though she might actually find them. Then, I think she's probably going to hook up with Ali which is a good thing, because she said she couldn't let a white man "inside her".
Finally, I think that she has finally made her transformation back to Birdie Lee after six years, because she has stopped telling so many lies and has opened up to Dot, Ali, and Ronnie. Because of this, I think the reason that she cannot go back to live with her mother is that her mother is still living a lie, and Birdie doesn't want to go back to that. I can see a happy ending coming up, but Mr. Kunkle said that it was a twisted ending so I don't know whats going to happen.
