Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns

Chapter 30 starts with Will and Miss. Love talking in the kitchen about why Queenie drinks out of a jar instead of a normal cup. Will thinks that she does because she told him that the first cup is always the best so a big jar makes a big first glass. Miss Love points out to Will that Quennie is just saying that because black people are not supposed to eat or drink off of the people they work fours stuff. They go on talking about the horse that Wills grandpa got for her and how much she likes it. As the chapters go on more drama starts happening. Will went to see his aunt to tell her he was sorry for making up all of the stories he did, and for her to yell at him he wanted her to. When he got there she grabbed him and took him inside. He thought she was mad at him but it turned out that her husband had painted the mantel and not taken any thing off. He left a coach roach , a button, and he left a match box up there and just painted around it. She was furious at him and would take it off because she wanted him to remember what he had done. When they got to talking about the stories that Will made up she stated laughing and said they were the best stories that she ad ever heard. She had an idea. She went in to the other room and brought him out a book. It was empty, and she told him that he was going to be a wrier. She told him to write down all the stories he thought of. He told her he didn't want to be a writer he wanted to be a framer. She blew off what he said and made him take it. Will started writing down everything that happened in his family and called it his journal. He looks back and is glad that he has the journal because now he can look back and remember what all happened to there family during the next couple weeks of his childhood.
