By Jeannette Walls

Part IV, Chapter 11

  • Remember Maureen? The youngest sister? We haven't heard about her in a while. What's she up to?
  • "Maureen stabbed Mom" (4.11.10).
  • Yikes.
  • Maureen had been living with Mom and Dad and getting even crazier than the two of them combined.
  • Maureen is sentenced to a hospital for a year.
  • When she gets out, Maureen moves to California.
  • Jeanette is the only one who sees Maureen off, and she apologizes to Maureen, saying she's "sorry for everything" (4.11.16).
