These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

Hollywood Homely: Pecola considers herself this, because she does not fit the accepted Caucasian standards of beauty. How ugly she really is remains unclear.
The Woobie: A lot of characters, but especially Pecola.
