This chapter starts with the author’s return to Buck’s Peak from Brigham Young University (BYU) at the end of the semester. Westover was ready to make changes in her life. “I filled my journals with promises that I would stay out of the junkyard” (Westover 167). She had been writing journals ever since she was admitted to BYU. Her school grades would be posted in a few weeks. It was then that she would determine whether she had failed or passed her exams. In the meantime, she needed money, so she went to get her old job at Stokes back. They were always busiest in the afternoon. It was during such moments that she was aware that they were understaffed and as expected, she was able to get a job after approaching the manager of the grocery store.
