Chapter 19 Summary: “Nina”

After leaving Julie’s house, Nina goes to her parents’ house. They talk about Finch and Kirk for a bit, but Nina does not tell her mom about the affair or the picture. Nina tells her mom that she will be spending more time with her and her father since Finch will be leaving for college soon. When she looks around their house and smells her father’s Sloppy Joes, she asks who is coming over for dinner. They tell her that her mom ran into her ex-boyfriend Teddy at the grocery store and that he will be joining them.

Nina learns that Teddy’s ex-wife has remarried and will be moving away. Nina’s mom suggests that Nina set Teddy up with one of her “rich, divorced Nashville friends” (249). At dinner, Nina’s mom jokes about how Teddy was almost her son-in-law, and they spend the evening laughing and joking with each other. Nina thinks about how attractive he still is, and her mom says how cute they are together. Her mom also comments on how much Kirk travels. Nina tells them she is filing for divorce.
