Transcript of Taylor

Thesis
"I've just spent about the last eight or nine months trying to convince her that nobody would hurt her again. Why would she believe me now?" (226).
"When I looked in the rear view mirror I caught sight of [Turtle] on Esperanza's lap, playing with Esperanza's hair and trying on Esperanza's glasses. Later I saw them playing a clapping-hands game. The two of them looked perfectly content," (265).
"...if I got caught I could get five years in prison and a $2,000 fine for each illegal person I was assisting, which in this case would be two. To tell the truth, I couldn't even let these things enter my head," (247).
