Abstract:

This novel's heroine is Taylor Greer ... 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 [this] 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 ... novel about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.-DY542.
