I had the section in the book going from 180-188 and a lot had happened in it. The section starts off by Erma is dead and the kids were very happy when their parents told them about her. After they find out about this there dad’s goes off to the bar and doesn’t return home for 4 days. Jeannette had to go out and look for him to be able to bring him home and when she did him he was in a bar way too drunk to walk home he fell trying to walk to the door. Someone at the bar drove the two of them home. Also Uncle Stanley was smoking a cigarette in the basement of his home reading comic books when he fell asleep and the cigarette caught the house on fire. The house burned to the ground but everyone made it out alive. After this happened uncle Stanley and grandpa got a new house and every day the kids would go over there because it had running water and they could take a shower. One of the times that when Jeannette was sitting on the bed with uncle Stanly when he started toughing her in a way he shouldn't have been. While he was doing this he was also playing with himself. When Jeannette went to tell her mom her mom didn't care. Then later on Jeannette and Brian were walking around the back yard when they found a ring that they wanted to sell to get money for food but when they showed there mom she said we are not getting rid of it that the ring helped her with her self-esteem. The last thing that happened is that Jeannette told her mom that she had to leave her husband because he was just bringing the whole family down and the family would be so much better without him. Her mom was not happy with what was being said to her. She said life is perfectly fine the way it is.

Uncle Stanley was touching Jeannette inappropriately and when she told him to stop he wouldn't stop.
Brain and Jeannette were walking around the property when they found a diamond ring but there mom didn't want to sell it because it help her self esteem.
Jeannette tells her mom that she has to leave Jeannette's dad because he is just bringing down the family and she thinks it wont get any better .
