I believe that Mildred D. Taylor chose to write about Cassie´s perspective because Cassie is a major evesdropper. This was so the reader would mostly always know what the elders were talking about. Unlike her other sibilings whom were mostly not always hearing the elders conversations. Also maybe she chose to write in Cassie´s perspective simply because she is the only girl child out of her sibilings. This is why I believe Mildred D. Taylor Wrote in Cassie´s perspective
Jacob I agree with you on the fact that it is because Cassie is an eaves dropper. I believe it is more in depth than that. Also I like how you sound confident about it. Also I think you should explain why it is not another child.

Yes, Cassie was indeed very nosey and they may have caused Mildred to write about her. But, she also said that the characters were inspired by the stories of her grandpa's stories so I wonder if she was actually nosey or not in real life.
Great thread yeah Taylor Could be Cassie when she was a little girl.But if not she probobly chose cassie because Taylor was like cassie when she was younger.Or she probobly was cassie and this might have been her child hood.

I thought that the book was based off a story told by a relative of Mildred D. Taylor. Maybe Mildred D. Taylor did give Cassie characteristics that reflected off her characteristics. Good thread Jacob.
