Answers
Novalee's superstition of the number seven stems from her mother abandoning her at that age, as well as receiving the scar on her lip, to having $7.77 in change at Wal-Mart, the day Willy Jack abandons her. Further bad luck arises from sevens when Americus is kidnapped at the age of seven months.
