As a child Jeannette really didn't know any different. She never stayed in place long enough to know what "normal" was.Her father, who she idolized, always had them "skedaddle" before ballifs or collection agencies showed up. As the intensity of dysfunction became more pronounced with age , Jeannette literally escaped to New York at 17 .
