Pattyn Von Stratten Burned, written by Ellen Hopkins, describes the hardships that Pattyn Von Stratten is faced. Pattyn is the oldest of nine children with the help of her sister Jackie; they help raise their siblings. Pattyn 's mom was a very depressed mom who did not take to her children, and her dad took to Johnnie Walker and wrongdoing on his wife and two oldest children. Being raised mormon has questioned her faith due to the abuse and neglect of her parents. While she is questioning her faith, she gets in some trouble and gets shipped off to her Aunt 's house in Nevada where she finds the love of her life.

As a result to all of her pain, Pattyn began to act out and put herself into situations that were against her parents and the churches wishes. "Home" performed by Three Days Grace (Songwriters: Adam Wade Gontier) (Link to Lyrics) "Home" is a very expressive rock song that emphasise the need to leave the house he is in.

"There Goes My Life" performed by Kenny Chesney (Songwriters: Wendell Mobley and Neil Thrasher) (Link to Lyrics) "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney is a very heartbreaking song about a young man who just found out that his significant other is having a child and how his life is over.
