Although Fat Sally (a nickname everyone seems to use) is initially one of Anita’s two best friends, she later shows herself inclined to stand up to Anita and challenge the girl’s opinions. When Anita makes fun of Sally’s family’s wealth as well as the nuns at Sally’s school, Sally grows vengeful and violent, physically attacking Anita by pulling off chunks of her hair. Sally apparently comes from a supportive family environment, and her mother occasionally tries to keep her away from Anita, whom she understands as a bad influence.
