In this chapter, "Mom", it shows Anne's mom for the first time in book years. She is old and limb. Anne isn't content with her. She feels that she is more needy than is needed.
This entire memior basically showed that if you have faith in god, he will help you. I don't quite agree with this, because I an confused on my faith in God. In accordance to the beginning of the book, it obviously shows not to do drugs. Despite how they may seem well in the high school days, it will come back to haunt you for a good portion of your life. Unless you seek help, like Anne did.
