I noticed that Raina and Sarah seemed to have a lot in common when it came to neglectful parents. Raina mentions running away with Craig and Sarah at one point in the novel in order to get away from her life. I feel that Raina’s desire to be a mother to Sarah stems from her desire to free Sarah from a life similar to Raina’s. It also stems from Raina’s desire to be loved and given attention as well.
