Jenny Mendoza is a great role-model of compassion. Kids display good manners in Ch. 12. Some of the story takes place in the past. At one point Aunt Gertrudis, who has already shown that she dislikes children, "spat" "Don't be an idiot" to her nephew, Micah. Some could argue that she didn't say he was an idiot just not to be one. From my experience most children can't distinguish the subtlety and find it highly insulting. The story could be an allegory for religious faith.
