There is a kind of doubled climax in this book. The climax of the Mrs. Gladstone's battle to keep her company is also a high point for Jenna, and is definitely the public climax of the entire novel. However, that meeting, and the encounter with and advice from Harry Bender, gives Jenna enough strength to have her own father arrested for drunk driving and start turning the family damage around.
