This move drastically changes their way of life and limits David's ability to socialize with other children. David has no real friends except Aunt Mae. She is a singer who is eccentric and dresses flamboyantly. The entire town talks about her behind her back but she doesn't mind. Any attention is good attention to Aunt Mae.
