From the Back Cover:

What Nomi Nickel needs most is a bus ticket out of town. For now, however, the rebellious 16-year-old is stuck living with her hapless father, Ray, in a bungalow in East Village — not the hip one in New York City but a smug Mennonite community ruled by her pious uncle, “The Mouth.” Nomi’s sister, Tash, left town a few years ago in her boyfriend’s truck. Soon afterwards, their mother, Trudie, disappeared. Now there’s nothing left but to piece together these mysterious defections and rage against the fundamentalist bullies. Wise, edgy, and wickedly funny, Nomi has wooed thousands of readers with her bittersweet tale of teenaged angst in Mennonite country. Cara Pifko’s narration strikes just the right note of childish bravado and wistful sarcasm.
