The Silver Star By Jeannette Walls Two girls strike out on their own across the country after their mother abandons them.
“Like so many other young people in this country, Timmy, when he reached age 18, was allowed to emancipate,” says Jeannette.

The police were at her house so often they were like members of the family, yet Jeannette would not turn her back on her only son.

Jeannette, happily, was looking not at me but at her, and so my troubled looks escaped her.
The day sweet Jeannette weds with you, I will saddle the horse shall carry you to church.
