In Chapter 9, Susie states that Grandma Lynn brings the light back into the Salmon household, which is emblematic of her support as she helps them to survive their grief. The make-up that Lynn applies on Lindsey’s face is a marker of adulthood for her—but as an adult she also has responsibility and independence.
