Abstract:

Set adrift when her grandfather passes away, Cale takes a waitressing job and reconnects with Penny, a former classmate who runs side-hustles to finance her dreams, but when Penny vanishes, Cale sets off on a dangerous quest across the desert to find her.

Cale Lambert lives in a dusty town near the California-Nevada border. She was raised by her grandfather, but as soon as she left high school his health began an agonizing decline. Now Cale begins work as a waitress at the local diner. There she reconnects with Penélope Reyes, a charismatic former classmate running mysterious side-hustles to fund her dreams. The girls become inseparable-- until one terrifying act of violence shatters their world. When Penny vanishes without a trace, Cale must set off on a dangerous quest across the desert to find her friend, and discover herself. -- adapted from jacket
