  • Addiction (drugs)
    Two characters in this novel are sober because their mother was a drug addict. One of these characters is addicted to cigarettes.
  • Child abuse
  • Depression
  • Homophobia/public outing
    This story takes place in a conservative county of Alabama. One of the characters being outed as bisexual becomes a professional liability. In addition to this, one of the characters was assaulted as a teenager, and her homosexuality was used as her attacker tried to rationalize the sexual abuse.
  • PTSD
    A character with PTSD goes through a dark patch and seeks help from her therapist.
  • Sexual assault
    One of the core characters has a history of sexual assault and a child resulting from these attacks. The actual assault is in the past and is not described in detail in the book, though the character vaguely recounts it. This character's mother also was pregnant at sixteen by someone much older, and while in the State of Alabama this is the age of consent, for many it would still be considered statutory rape.
