When Cathy moves out, Meme Ortiz and his family move into her old house, which Cathy’s father built out of wood. Everything in the house is crooked and lopsided. Meme has a large sheepdog, which has two names, one English and one Spanish. The children use the huge tree in Meme’s back garden for a “Tarzan Jumping Contest,” which Meme wins, though he breaks both his arms.
