I stopped half way through
Because things got dark when
The Ouija board killed
The man cleaning the coffee pot in the kitchen
Close to the unnamed laundromat which seems to me to be
A protagonist they used to smoke and drink behind
She was only 13
That is when the addiction started…
“We struggled, moved to the next road over in a house outta apt, Tara was staying out all night, got a boyfriend way way older than her”
She lived with her father and her stepmom until Jen was born and she was abused. Then she came to live with her mother.
“The Monopoly Game at McDonald’s-Tara and I lived on that for that whole summer.”
Other people in the house played a different kind of monopoly game, eating everything, seven people in a three bedroom house.
“He and his girlfriend in my mother’s bed..we did not warn them when she came home…she threw the girl out”
Inadvertently losing both a daughter-in-law and her own favorite bar shirt which the young woman was wearing at the time.
“Mom started doing cocaine”
