Vanessa had a very troubled childhood; she used to cut herself because of it. She hated her mom, and as she got older she realized how much she resembled her. She felt useless, and alone, so the cuts got worse and worse as she grew older.

Nancy Cruzan's battle began on January 11th, 1983 when she was ejected from her car in a terrible accident. That night, the struggle had just began for Nancy's family. The battle that actually lasted a total of seven years, doesn't equate to the lifelong suffering the Cruzan family must live with the rest of their lives – without Nancy.

After doing some extensive research I found myself touched, even moved and full of compassion for a woman that was lead down such a self destructive path by an overbearing, controlling, rigid conservative religious nut named Randy Yates.

It was hard for her to receive so much attention from her father, but have her mother abandon her emotionally. Hadaller wrote “The clear distinction in the novel between Helen’s child Maudie and Milton’s Peyton highlights the intense polarization in the family.”(Hadaller58) It was a twisted situation for the family, Milton choosing Peyton and Helen consuming herself with Maudie. In the end it only caused trouble for everyone. “The dependant Maudie and the fiercely independent Peyton are set up in the novel to dramatize the family’s fracture.
