Godbee from Olive's Ocean is Martha's grandmother. They don't know one another that well so when she goes to visit Godbee, her grandmother suggests that each day they are together that they tell one thing about themselves to each other. Martha agrees and discovers that they have a lot in common. She also appreciates the fact that her grandmother seems to 'get' her and doesn't ridicule the notion that she wants to be a writer. Godbee is a good study of human nature and is easier with the rules than Martha's parents.
