Three unhappy kids who are stuck in the Nevada desert in 1951 think running away will solve their problems.

Dani O'Donnell is stuck in the middle of the desert, in gruesome Rattler Springs. She knows the desert hates her, and she returns the favor in spades. All she wants to do is get back to California, but she and her mother are too broke to move. Just before her 13th birthday, Dani decides to run away. But before she can get anywhere, 9-year-old Stormy decides he's going, too. Now Dani must come up with money for two bus tickets.

Dani and Stormy are busy earning money when Pixie moves to town. She is the strangest girl--and the biggest liar--Dani has ever met, but she's also rich. She wants to run away too, and she gets them the money they need. Now they each must face what running away will mean--and why they're really doing it.

From the Back Cover:

"[The] deepening view of the children's home lives and Dani's growing affection for Stormy and Pixie prove steadily more engrossing."--Publishers Weekly, Starred

"The dying town and desperate people are very real and touching. The plight of these creative and neglected children will keep readers turning the pages."
--School Library Journal, Starred
