  • Practically Different Generations: Jamie is fourteen years old when her mother gives birth to her five siblings.
  • Tagline: "As if life at 14 isn't twisted enough!".

  • Unreliable Narrator: Jamie often tells the viewer such lies as her living close to the Statue of Liberty and winning a shower of money, but she immediately retracts each one.
