Thanks for the quick run-down of the book. I was struck by one thing you said "Jaycee doesn't explain a lot about her current relationship with her mother or family. She thanks them in the end of the book, and indicates that her distance from them should not be considered a reflection of her feelings towards them (? loosely paraphrased as book is not presently in hand). I assume then that she doesn't live with them and doesn't identify very strongly with them" I thought everything that I have seen and read have said that Jaycee lives with her mother and half sister Shayna in northern California. And from her recent ABC interview and other articles it appears that Jaycee and Terry are inseparable. So I am a bit confused by what was said there regarding her relationship with her family.
