In this section, Jeannette has completely had it with the dynamic of her family and the people around her. she gets a job because her family doesn't have any money. her boss is a total creep and rubs her back and on top of that doesn't trust her so he checks the jewelry every time he comes back from the diner across the street. one day she decided to steal the watch because it was actually something she likes then she felt guilty because she didn't want to prove Mr.Becker right. she goes home later and gets into a fight with her mom because her mom wants to start living her life for her self, then jean makes the point that she still has to be a mother for her kids and work to provide. her mother didn't take well to that and tells jeans dad. Her dad goes onto beating her with a belt after she says he isn't a good father either. she ran out of the house into the woods and plans her escape out of her family and town just as her sister is doing.

don't you dare talk to your mother like that
he flirts with her and rubs her back, he doesn't trust her to not steal.
I either need to do what Lori is doing and make enough money to get out of this town or run away
so she steals a watch she returns it later
her mom decided to quit her job and now she mad and gets into a fight with her mom and dad.
