She often thought of running away to escape her mother, but she was discouraged by vivid stories told by other children about runaway girls who had been raped. Her approaching marriage to Wayne Lombard, a high-school sweetheart, introduces Annette to a new life, and makes Wayne understand that he has competition in Mr. Truelove, Annette's man-sized teddy bear, who sleeps with her.
