Summary
Meet Taylor Greer. Clear eyed and spirited she grew up poor in rural Kentucky with two goals: to avoid pregnancy and to get away. She succeeds on both counts when she buys a 55 Volkswagen and heads west. But by the time our plucky if unlikely heroine pulls up on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona at an auto repair shop called Jesus is Lord Used tires that also happens to be a sanctuary for Central American refugees, she's inherited a three year old American Indian girl named Turtle. What follows as Taylor meets the human condition head on is at the heart of this memorable novel about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places
Summary
Taylor Greer hits the road wanting only to get as far away from Kentucky as possible, ending up in Arizona with a 3-year-old Cherokee girl she has inherited from a woman in a bar
