Chapter 28

Summary When Henry, the sick neighbor, finally passes away, Francie thinks about change. She believes that things are changing all around her. Small things, which used to give her great pleasure, have no meaning for her now; the games, which used to be fun, are now boring; the plays that used to interest her now seem silly and totally unrealistic. Francie finally comes to the realization that it is she who is changing and growing up.


Notes

In this chapter, the author sensitively points out that Francie is growing up. She is now beginning to view her world with reality and maturity. As a result, things that used to interest her now bore her. Additionally, she has lots of questions about life that she would like to have answered; unfortunately, since there is no one to answer the questions, she must find her own responses. Katie, with her limited education, gave up trying to answer Francie's questions long ago.
