You caught me mid-post @MWollaeger!
I still am not convinced.
Panicking, throwing up when lying, being afraid, being righteous (principled to a fault) -- all of these seem like Mind problems.
I thought this at first too -- daughter of an undocumented immigrant totally sounds like a Situation problem.
But then I kept thinking about how she throws up when she lies. This seems pretty central. Not only is it the way she resolves the story (Unique Ability?), it makes it really, really hard to hide your culpability in someone's death when you literally can't tell a lie without yukeing. The absolutely sounds a lot more like a Mind problem to me -- I can't see that as a Situation issue at all.
So which is it?
So this is where I get frustrated with/question the one step at a time approach.
Isn't it possible (say) that:
- Panicking, fear, rightousness etc. stuff is Mind;
- The Concern is Memory (everyone forgets where she comes from -- which is a way of saying they don't take account of her at all)
- Then the Issue is Falsehood -- she throws up when she lies. But also wouldn't the issue of lying be an especially difficult problem for someone whose mother is undocumented? I can't articulate the gist, but I don't think "being undocumented" is that far away from Falsehood.
- Finally, that leaves us with a Problem of Inequity -- undocumented people face unjust treatment, don't have the resources to fight deportation, and Marta is stuck as the help.
Totally willing to be wrong on this ...
EDIT: This might be more of a stretch, but she also appears to forget (Memory) which vial is the right one.
