Cecilia's age was mentioned twice in the movie. The first time was when she was in the hospital after her attempted suicide. When the doctor asked her why she was there, her reply was, 'obviously doctor, you've never been a thirteen year old girl.' The second time was when the narrator was introducing the girls as they got out of the Lisbon family car.
8Between her suicide attempt and her actual suicide, what was the only thing Cecilia wore?
Answer: A 1920's wedding dress
The book went more into depth about this clothing item. Cecilia had some attachment to this dress and never seemed to take it off until she died. After her death, her mom threw away the dress and Cecilia was buried in a stiff beige dress.
11According to Cecilia's diary, who did Lux "fall for"?
Answer: The garbage man
Lux lost it over Kevin Haynes, the garbage man. She'd wake up at 5 in the morning and lay about on the front porch like it wasn't completely obvious! She wrote his name in marker in all her bras and underwear and mom found them and bleached out all the Kevins. Lux has been crying on her bed all day.
The story began with Cecilia's attempted suicide, and ended a year later with the rest of the girls' suicides. Cecilia's nearly dead body was discovered by Paul Baldino when he snuck into the Lisbon house.
20There is a strike at the cemetery and the workers are not doing burials until they get better pay. When Cecilia's family pulls up and Mr. Lisbon talks to the cemetery workers, they allow him to proceed with Cecilia's funeral. Why?
Answer: Because Cecilia was only 13
After Mr. Lisbon talks to the cemetery workers, they put down their signs and step aside to allow the car and hearse to pass. You can then hear one of the workers say "He said she was only 13".
Lux seemed to be the 'ideal' sister, but she showed all her teeth when she smiled, much like her other sisters, and laughed like a hyena. Mary had a slight mustache which she bleached, Bonnie had a long neck, and Therese had a cow-like face.
The first time her ghost was seen was by her father in her room, but this later turned out to be Bonnie in a long nightgown. The second time Tim Weiner saw Cecilia sitting on his bed right before he fully woke up. And the last time she was seen sitting on a tree by Chase Buell on his way to school.
