Lonnie writes about sometimes going to the drugstore to smell the honeysuckle talc powder. Why does he do this? When Lonnie is missing his mother, he goes to the drugstore, and asks the ladies working at the cosmetics counter if he can smell the honeysuckle talc powder, the kind his mother used to wear. Smelling the powder helps Lonnie feel for just a few seconds that his mother is still alive and brings back memories of what she was like pp. Though Lonnie doesn't live with his sister anymore, he often writes about her. What kind of brother is Lonnie to his sister Lili? How do we know?
Lonnie is a devoted, kind brother to Lili. He often feels great sadness when he thinks of Lili, mostly because he misses her.
Yet he feels proud and happy for her, when he sees her dressed up with her hair braided, because she has a new mama and a lovely new home. Lonnie feels fiercely protective of his sister and will do anything to make her happy, even reading his Bible and praying as she asked him to do.

Why do you think Lonnie is so irritated with Ms. Marcus - his favorite teacher --when she assigns the class to write about their families? For Lonnie, Ms. Marcus is a sympathetic soul, and her class is a place of refuge. Lonnie usually enjoys the freedom he feels in her class to write about what is in his heart. But when Ms. Marcus asks the class to write about their families, he can hardly bear sitting there in her class and feels deeply angry toward his teacher.
He wants to yell, "What family?
His present "family" is only Miss Edna, the foster mother he feels ambivalent toward, and Ms. Marcus's assignment causes Lonnie to feel rage over his loss. Miss Edna is overjoyed because her son Rodney is coming back to the city to live. How does Lonnie feel about Rodney, and what role does Rodney end up playing in Lonnie's life?
When Rodney returns to the city and enters Lonnie's life, Lonnie begins to feel more comfortable living at Miss Edna's house, and for the first time it feels like home to him. Rodney takes an interest in Lonnie, spending time walking and playing basketball at the park. Over time, Rodney becomes like a true big brother to Lonnie, acting as a confidant and friend to him.

He tries to get thoughts of Eric out of his head, but he feels overwhelmed with sadness and fear for his classmate, and his mind is flooded with all his memories of Eric.
Lonnie's response shows that even though he has had more experience with grief than most, he remains a tenderhearted, compassionate boy, quick to forgive and feel sympathy for others. When his friends are trying to outdo one another with tall tales of the strange things they've seen, Lonnie just says, "Never seen nothing. Do you think he should be more open? Can you imagine how you would be, in Lonnie's shoes? Lonnie isn't ready to be open with his new friends.
