Chapter 19 Summary: Tomato Day!• Josie and her family have a tradition that they have to make their own pasta and sauce to go with it, this is when the whole tomato thing comes into place every year on a specific day all the family comes together and they pick tomatoes for the sauce, they squash them by hand and then cook them and then squash them again.• Robert and I call this day “Wog day” or “National Wog day”. Nonna and Zia started to tell the story about Marcus Sandford and how he helped them with the garden while the men where at camp.• This chapter reveals that Josie and her family get on very well when they aren’t fighting and telling others what to do and how to do it, we also get to see that Josie’s family loves to carry out tradition.
Important Quotations• "I thought that maybe if I spoke to someone they would feel sorry for us and send u back one man. Maybe all out husbands." (pg 174)• "Marcus walked through holding something in his arms. He was crying. I was crying. Patrizia was crying. We walked towards him looking at what he had in his arms." (pg 175)• "Like all tomato days we had spaghetti that night. Made by our own hands. A tradition that well never let go. A tradition that I probably will never let go of either, simply because like religion, culture is nailed into you so deep you cant escape it. No matter how far you run." (pg 175)
