dc.description.abstract This memoir originated from a final project in Honors 199, where we had to write a letter to a family member who could be considered the black sheep and who was kicked out of the family long ago. As the letter evolved into the memoir, it became a way for me to examine some of my family's demons, quirks, and the strain I was feeling at being in between my family's expectations and my own. This thesis explains my family's views on holidays, interpersonal relationships, pets, memories and how we refuse to deal with them. These chapters show a daughter's difficulty in growing up and becoming her own functioning person in light of a dysfunctional and unhappy family.
