Aunt Tiff Character Analysis

Aunt Tiff is Manny’s mother and Quan’s aunt, though he only meets her once. She and her family live in a wealthy part of Atlanta, and the one time that Quan meets Aunt Tiff she’s well put-together and glamorous. Tiff and Mama are half-sisters, but they didn’t know the other existed until Tiff’s mother died and the women’s shared father admitted to having relationships with multiple women. Mama seems to resent Aunt Tiff for having grown up with their father and for living a life that’s so different from her own.
