The following characters narrate chapters: Yessenia, Joanne, Michelle, Jimmie, Ricky, Mia, and Teddy. Joanne tends to use big words more than the others. The author tends to speak through her. Yessenia tends to mispronounce things. Mia slips in and out of Spanish and dances around things she does not want to talk about. Ricky habitually says the wrong thing.
