Max Cummings is the story of a girl who comes from the small town North Idaho. She was a model for American Girl Dolls when she was young and then later on, when she turned 18, she moved to Alaska, where she had an opportunity to pursue modelling and acting as well. However, after several years of waiting for her mother to come home from work every day at McDonald’s in her hometown, she ran away from home and never returned. In an interview with Max at the age of 24 in 2011 , Cummings said that it is not possible for women like her to decide if they want to go back home or not. She always felt that if they were not doing something good enough somewhere else than here, then it would be too bad for them.
