About this Item

In a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. Author's highly praised debut novel that follows the adventures of Taylor Greene, a young woman who having grown up poor in rural Kentucky, buys an old car and heads west. A touch of wear to bottom corners, a hint of soiling to bottom text block, tiny nick to bottom edge of front board, light creasing, wear to head of dj spine. Despite minor flaws, a beautiful copy.

About this title

Synopsis:

"A warmhearted and highly entertaining first novel in which a poor but plucky Kentucky girl . . . arrives at surprising new meanings for love, friendship, and family."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

From the Back Cover:

Clear-eyed and spirited, Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away. But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car, she meets the human condition head-on. By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson, Arizona, she has acquired a completely unexpected child, a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle, and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.
