Her “journals,” in other words her autobiographical narratives such as Killing Chickens, “Shunned” and “Without a map” all reveal specific different bitter portions of her life that she has faced and overcame and reassures readers like me, that we can too. Ha Hall writes about overcoming many daunting situations, the earliest hardship that she writes about encountering is getting pregnant at sixteen. In “Shunned” Hall shares her experience of receiving rejection from everywhere she turned including school, church and even family when she accidentally got pregnant. A reader can see how unfairly she was punished how nobody should be treated that way. Hall uses emotional appeal to show how much it hurt her for example.

In Nineteen Thirty-Seven, Josephine and her mother Manman’s relationship is strained because her mother is in prison for allegedly killing an infant. Ever since the day her mother was put in prison, she has not said a word to her mother.
Nancy's family was compromised the first night that Nancy was brought into the emergency room, they were afraid and rushed to make decisions that they weren't ready to make. The shock of what happened had not processed yet, and they ultimately didn't realize that on January 11th ,1983 - “they had lost Nancy”, as her sister put it on the Frontline documentary.
