I agree! Both Tammy and Jerry were being used as a crutch of sorts until someone better came along for Reed and Ruby, respectively.

I didn't feel bad for Tammy at all. Tammy knew what she was getting into. She was with Reed for the attention. I don't feel that she was in love with Reed at all. He was more of a possession to her.

I found the topic of Tammy the most interesting part of this book discussion. I didn't consider her a major character, but it's funny how all of us had such different opinions about her. Some of the members would agree with you that Tammy just wanted Reed as a "trophy boyfriend." I thought she was insecure and jealous of Ruby popping onto the scene and having the two guys vying for her affections. I thought she really liked Reed and wished he would feel the same in return. I think her little comments to Ruby came out of her insecurity.
