Of course, thought DJ as she led Eliza from the office. Naturally, someone as important as Eliza would be entitled to that. Not that DJ had wanted it. And perhaps her grandmother had actually offered it to her last month. Besides she liked her sunny yellow bedroom and, in her opinion, it had the best view in the house.
On a clear day, you could actually glimpse a sliver of the Atlantic Ocean from her small bathroom window. DJ started to do a repeat of her earlier tour, even using the same lines, until she realized that Eliza was actually interested.

Rhiannon also shares with her friend with DJ that she had been praying to the Lord that God would send another believing friend and she thought it would be DJ. Other girls in the house where DJ lives all come from Christian families but none of them is Christian. One of the girls opens subversives against her parents and also disapproves their belief system.
The Mixed Bags only features Christian belief system and no other belief system. However, she does not earn genuine respect of the girls. The girls admire her for her fashion sense but not for her maternal or leadership role. Even for DJ, she is not respectful to her grandma, and most occasions the reader would find them arguing.
When the girls get to discuss how their relationship was with their parents, they express mixed attitudes about authority. For instance, Taylor is portrayed as an independent girl throwing off any attempts or rules to control her. On the other hand, Kriti has respect for her parents, and at one point she informs DJ that if she ever finds herself in uncomfortable situ with smoking, drinking or maybe others being mean, she can call her parents to come and rescue her. Rhiannon is appreciative and respectful of her parents while Casey opens rebels against her parents.

At the first few pages of the novels when DJ is a tomboy, her boyfriend respects her, but as DJ takes more interest in her appearance, things get out of hand. DJ also has a conversation with Katherine who does not want the girls sleeping around or having unsafe sex if they have to make out.
There are few occurrences in the story of underage drinking.
