"[A] portrait of a gritty mother and daughter, living on the edge of poverty, who find an unlikely home amid the quirky residents of small town America" -- "For thirteen-year-old Ruthie Carmichael and her mother, Rita, life has never been stable. The only sure thing is their love for each other. Though Rita works more than one job, the pair teeters on the edge of poverty. When their landlord kicks them out, Rita resorts to her movie-star looks and produces carpet-installer Phil, "an instant boyfriend," who takes them in. Before long, Ruthie convinces her mother to leave and in their battered Ford Escort, they head East in search of a better life. When money runs out and their car breaks down, they find themselves stranded in a small town called Fat River where their luck finally takes a turn. Rita lands a steady job waitressing at Tiny's, the local diner. With enough money to pay their bills, they rent a house and Fat River becomes the first place they call home. Peter Pam, Tiny's transgender waitress and the novel's voice of warmth and reason, becomes Ruthie's closest friend. Arlene, the no-nonsense head waitress, takes Rita under her wing. The townspeople--Hank and Dotty Hanson, the elderly owners of the embattled local hardware store, and even their chatter-mouth neighbor Patti--become Ruthie and Rita's family. Into this quirky utopia comes smooth-talking mortgage broker Vick Ward, who entices Rita with a subprime loan. Why rent when you can own? Almost as soon as Rita buys a house their fortunes change. Faced once again with the prospect of homelessness, Rita reverts to survival mode, and the price she pays to keep them out of poverty changes their lives forever" --… (lisätietoja)

The characters were fascinating, but I was disappointed that the author did not delve more into HOW the main character got to school, no matter where she and her mother ended up. It was unrealistic to expect that she would just walk into a new school, time after time and just be accepted, and that there was coordination between the many places she learned. I wouldn't pick on this point, but she does, talking about how her mother would do ANYTHING to make sure that she wouldn't miss a day of school, and yet, there were so many days on the road.

I think a little more attention to continuity was necessary to make this good book a great book. ( )

The best book I've read this year. A brilliant book about poverty, hope, friendships, and family. ( )

I'm giving this a 3 star because the book held my attention long enough to finish it. I was attracted to the book because of the diner involved in the story. So the writing was good, it was just so depressing for me. ( )

Can a female writer be a mysogynist? If so, then Weatherwax is. The main character is a cardboard cutout and entirely unbelieavable. But Weatherwax is a very good writer. ( )

Rita and her 13 year old daughter, Ruthie are living with another boyfriend of Rita's and trying to get back on their feet. As they leave poor Phil behind, their car breaks down in a very small town where they are treated kindly by the few people that still live there. This is a quick read and enjoyable for if you're in the mood for a coming of age book for the 13 year old daughter in spite of her mother. ( )
