Trivia: Mentioned on Commentary - the poster at the bus stop "Beauty is Truth" is a picture of Nikki Reed's (Evie) eyes on another woman's face. The picture is supposedly symbolic because each time we see the poster it is more graffitied/ruined, symbolising how Evie is making Tracy more out-of-control and dirty (e.g. introducing her to drugs and sex.).

Chosen answer: If you watch the commentary on the movie they discuss this, they explain that the guy who played the mom's boyfriend came up to them and just started doing that thing with the chicken and they thought it was funny so they put it in the movie.

Question: When Tracy finds her mom's boyfriend's clothes in the laundry, what is she talking about when she says that her mom promised her and Mason something?

Chosen answer: Her mom had promised that her boyfriend was only coming for dinner and was not going to stay with them anymore, and when Tracy found his clothes in the laundry, that shows that he stayed the night and that she had broken her promise.

Question: Why does Tracy start starving herself?

Chosen answer: Young girls starve themselves for a variety of reasons. Many are insecure and have unrealistic expectations of how their bodies should look and, desperate to be popular with boys, stop eating to lose as much weight as possible. For others it a combination of trying to be thin, having something in their lives that they alone can control, an an act of rebellion, and so on. This often develops into a real disease called anorexia that needs medical treatment.
