After the death of her best and only friend, Dorothy Meacham finds herself on track to become just like her mother – living off of boyfriends and government benefits without hope or aspiration. When she leaves with a mysterious stranger they took in as a boarder, she finds that his nomadic life is really homelessness and grifting – and that changing her destiny will be much harder than she imagined.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
I’m not going to tell you it seemed like a good idea at the time, because it didn’t. I’m not stupid. Running away from home by wrangling my way into the truck of a man I barely knew was not a good idea any way you cut it. But I did it anyway.
Look at it this way: I was 21 and looked 15. I was on Section 8 and food stamps. I had a crap job under the table. The only person I gave two shits about was dead. I did not have a car. I did not have friends. I did not have prospects. And it had been a long time since I felt anything like hope.
But now, for the low, low one-time price of my accumulated college credits, my illegal job, and my tenuous relationship with my mother, I could escape.
I knew life on the road would be tough, but I really thought I could hack it. Living in cheap motels and eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at greasy spoons was not going to be a problem. Even cheap motels had HBO. They got cleaned now and then. It would be an upgrade, really.
