Etzerline is a fourteen year old young lady from the village of Placement near Galette Chambon who lives with her father, five sisters, and five brothers. Her father tries to support his family by farming and doing other odd jobs, but it is very difficult for him to do take care of them all by himself. Etzerline is behind in school because she has had to sit out of school for several years to help take care of the younger children. She is desperately eager to return to school now, but she cannot do so if she doesn’t have a sponsor to help her. Etzerline enjoys cleaning house and washing dishes and everything else she does to take care of the house. When she grows up, she would like to become a flight attendant and travel the world.
