By Jeannette Walls

Part II, Chapter 23

  • Termites and cockroaches aren't the only pests in the house.
  • Mom and Dad leave the front and back doors and all the windows open, so people wander in.
  • Sometimes creepy old men come in and touch the kids.
  • Brian and Jeannette chase the perverts away, but Mom and Dad still won't close the doors.
  • Good night. Sleep tight. Don't let the perverts bite.
