Synopsis: Losing everything when her father is let go from his job, Mary becomes an unheeded voice of reason as her family struggles for survival in their RV, and a sudden and violent act is the only way Mary is finally able to save her family.

From School Library Journal: Grade 6-10?Sixteen-year-old Mary Wolf's life is far from stable. When her father's business folded, he packed up the family in the RV and began a cross-country trek. As the story begins, they have been on the road for a long time, have no money left, and Mama steals from stores and neighbors and resells the merchandise at flea markets. Escaping a possible arrest, the family flees to California and comes upon a decrepit beach campsite where other destitute families live. Mary meets Rocky, a ray of hope and friendship in the form of an 18-year-old runaway. It seems as though the Wolfs may settle there, at least "until they get back on their feet." But when state troopers inform them that the area must be evacuated, Mary and her father discover that the camper is in need of a new engine. He falls into a deep and desperate depression and takes the only action he can think of. And Mary has to confront him with a gun?for he has stolen a neighbor's weapon, shot her mother, and is holding her siblings hostage. Grant's story is set in the starkly realistic world of homeless families. Her gripping prose flows from Mary's first-person narrative, which reveals an adolescent who lives with the frustration of a life that has been forced upon her. The tension suspensefully builds throughout, and with each crisis, readers are drawn towards the sadly powerful climax. This novel successfully personalizes a contemporary tragedy and is a worthwhile addition to most YA collections.?Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL
