Book 4, Chapter 8 Summary

Jenna realized that she could rely on no one but herself. Everyone had his or her own agenda for her, and she began to get bitter and angry. Then she met Rodney Hopkins. He made her bitterer and angrier, because of the way, he treated her during production and photo shoots. He called her every night wanting to go out, but she always refused. She just was not interested.

Her sister-in-law, Selena, called her during this time and told her she was pregnant, but the happiness was short lived. Tony told her that he was clean and excited about being a father, but that their grandmother, on their father's side, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy trying to get the cancer before it got out of control.

Adult Video News teamed up with VCA, an adult film production company, to make a movie. They asked Wicked if Jenna was available, so Wicked loaned Jenna to them. A week into shooting the movie, Jenna got very sick. By the end of the shoot, she was so sick; she knocked on her neighbor's door and asked where she could go to get medical help. She went where they told her. She told the doctor she was allergic to most antibiotics. So, she thought when he diagnosed her with Strep throat, he had considered her allergies. However, when she got home and took her medicine she had an allergic reaction. The only telephone number she could find was for Rod. She thought if he were really interested, he would help her. He did help her; in fact, he saved her life. He got her to a hospital with only 15 minutes to spare. Her throat was almost completely swollen shut when they arrived.

Jenna spent six weeks recuperating from Strep throat she got from one of the actresses on the movie set. Being alone all that time, made her think about suicide again. She had no money, and no one that love her. She would feel so weak some nights, she was sure she was ready to die. She felt like she needed someone, that she could not do this on her own. Deep down she knew it was not true, but that was how she felt at the time. She had been in Los Angeles for seven months and had never gone out, made friends, or anything. Instead of suicide, she decided she had to go out and be social.

Book 4, Chapter 8 Analysis

Jenna uses her time recuperating to re-examine her life. She is becoming a hermit and does not like it. The reader can see her fighting inside herself. Her mind does not want a man in her life to hurt her, but her heart misses the love she feels when she is with someone special. She knows that she has to get out and live if she wants to succeed.

Rod steps to the occasion by showing that he does care for her, even though she rejects his attempts to date her and sometimes even talk to her.
