I want to marry Jenny Han and have her babies...so that I might imprison them and force them to write for me. I just love everything she's written. Her female protagonists, I mean. Look, my mom never had a drinking problem, I never tutored anyone, I'm not southern, I never have fallen in love with a boy I was friends with. But I identify so strongly with Shug (and Belly!), it's kind of scary. Even when they're whiny and annoying and so immature I should wanna slap 'em, I can understand why they're whiny and annoying, and I side with them. No matter what.
