First, she has some extremely bad habits such as cutting herself, smoking weed, and overdosing on pills. Her reason for doing this is that she believes it will solve all of her problems.

On the other hand, when Natalie has a problem, she either does drugs, cuts herself, or runs away and makes bad choices with older men.

It happens more than once and becomes an obsession, even when she is in the car accident in the hospital room. She was putting by the scoop into her mouth. (Page 229) This is so difficult for me to understand let alone relate too. I can’t imagine having a disorder of that magnitude and it saddens me to think that other teenages do.
