She gets slapped like BAMMM right in the face

Menlo Park- Josefina grabs Monica by her long, black ponytail, pulling with the force of everything Latina. As her grip tightens and Monica drops to the ground, Josefina thinks about the day when tío Carlos drank too much, so that even the dogs knew to stay away from him. He slapped her in the face because she wanted money for the school book fair. As Monica yells at Josefina to stop, Josefina cries for the first time since Paco died.
