How would you described Twyla in "recitatif"?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Twlya is the main character, and the stories narrator. I think that I would describe her as determined, and a bit hard headed. She gets into conflicts (such as the busing one and of course her interactions with Roberta) and she is very hard on herself.
