Did Sofia have a degree? If so what was it in?
Sofia was way too stubborn to follow any direction in life. She gets the reader's attention much of the time in the story due to her rebellious nature, her jumping around from boyfriend to boyfriend, and her refusal to live through the expectations of her parents. It is her sisters who graduate college, one even goes to graduate school. Sofia simply remained behind her sisters and felt quite content with herself.
