Chapter 6 Summary

Aza has nothing to do after school because Daisy has to work, so she drives aimlessly and returns home. Lyle brought back the canoe, repaired. Aza’s mother guesses that Aza and Daisy were paddling on the river so they could see Davis. Aza’s mother asks how Davis is doing, without his father, and Aza thinks he is okay. Aza and her mother talk about Aza’s late father, who died because of a heart attack. Aza’s father would have understood Aza in ways her mother cannot, though he was such a worrier that Aza might have found that exhausting. Aza’s mother still cannot believe that he left them.

Aza goes to meet Daisy at Applebee’s, their favorite hangout. They use coupons to get cheap hamburgers every visit. Daisy shows Aza an obscene picture she received as fan mail in response to her Star Wars fiction. Daisy tells Aza that she researched wills and found that Pickett can will his estate to a foundation to benefit an animal. Daisy tells Aza to research the Pickett family while she gets a copy of the police report.

On her laptop, Aza goes through Davis’s various social media pages. She finds Davis’s blog, which features quotes.
