Book 4, Chapter 2 Summary

Jenna started doing photo shoots for Suze Randall again, but this time she knew, they needed her as much as she needed them, and she used this knowledge. She also gained the knowledge that she was now truly independent, even though she was still living with Nikki and Buddy. She knew she would have to move out soon.

During a photo shoot, she met a producer from Heatwave. He asked her about doing a movie for him called Silk Stockings. She spent weeks thinking about it. Nikki was against it, but when she talked to her father, he told her to do what she wanted; he supported her decisions, and to be the best at whatever she decided. She called the producer and accepted.

It was not long after the shoot started that Nikki told her to get out of the house. She told Jenna that she was slutting around and did not like it. Jenna, however, was worried about Nikki. She saw the control Buddy had over Nikki and her partying did not help her gain her control back. Michael was the only other person who understood that Nikki had a problem.

Michael helped Jenna find an apartment and move her things. When Jenna left Nikki's house, neither said anything.

Book 4, Chapter 2 Analysis

The reader sees Jenna working on her career, yet not knowing where the future would lead her. When she is asked to work on another adult film, she is pulled from all sides, friends saying not to compromise herself, her own bad experience, and her father telling her to be the best she can be at whatever she does. He helps her know that if she is not having a problem accepting what she wants to do then it is ok. Larry truly is trying to be a father, even if it is too late, and he has to be the father of an adult instead of a child.

The fight between herself and Nikki is fueled by jealousy, drugs, and wanting to get out of the business. Nikki is not happy with her own life and seems to be taking her anger out on Jenna rather than the real problem, Buddy. Jenna knows that she has to step away from Nikki to keep heading in the right direction, and although it is hard, she does it. The reader is getting a new respect for Jenna as she keeps gaining ground in her life and independence.
