Lisa lived with Jobs and Powell for all four of her years at Palo Alto High School, and she began using the name Lisa Brennan-Jobs.
He tried to be a good father, but there were times when he was cold and distant.
When Lisa felt she had to escape, she would seek refuge with a friendly family who lived nearby.
Powell tried to be supportive, and she was the one who attended most of Lisa's school events.
By the time Lisa was a senior, she seemed to be flourishing.
She joined the school newspaper, The Campanile, and became the coeditor.
Together with her classmate Ben Hewlett, grandson of the man who gave her father his first job,
she exposed secret raises that the school board had given to administrators.
When it came time to go to college, she knew she wanted to go east.
She applied to Harvard—forging her father's signature on the application because he was out of town
and was accepted for the class entering in 1996.
At Harvard Lisa worked on the college newspaper, The Crimson, and then the literary magazine, The Advocate.
After breaking up with her boyfriend, she took a year abroad at King's College, London.
