Who is that character?

In responding to a writing student of mine today, I made the following suggestion about helping her analyze the description of her main character Marie:

Print out the first chapter and take a yellow highlighter and highlight the descriptive passages and words about Marie. Has the narrator done a good job of helping readers come to know her? If you think your description of Marie is not as strong as it could be, write a separate character sketch of her and add a few of those traits into the first 25 pages.
