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.
