It was so hard to watch this little family within a family be broken up again and again with atrocities committed against them that none should have to bear. It was inspiring to see how they pulled together to take care of each other while still reaching out to try and rescue the lost parent that still lived. Jaz may have been a hardcore-kick-butt-and-apologize-later type of girl, but deep down she was the "mother" between them, always guiding, sharing, and caring...in her own way. Greg, their brother, was a gentle spirit, and carried that kindness with him despite the tortures others inflicted upon him. As for Heather, she's more than simply our narrator or a victim of circumstance, she's a survivor, and considering where she came from any sort of normalcy achieved would be a celebratory point. So, settle for what she could get? Nope! She shot for the stars and while fame and fortune may not have been the end result, a life in the sun, with loved ones to cherish, and even a chance to make amends with her father, are definitely not something to shrink from.
