The most dissapointing event of their life in Phoenix was Christmas, the Walls' children had learned to not expect gifts on Christmas, but this Chrismas was different. Their mother had let each of them have a dollar and they had all preceded to buy gifts for one anotherEveryone was overjoyed, except her father who lit everything on fire while he was enraged. On Jeanette's birthday there was only one thing she wantedso she decided to ask her father for it. She asked him if he could stop drinking, he was afraid she was ashamed of him, and then he sat and thought for a while. Then they were gone again, on the move unaware of where they were going to go.
