Publisher's Summary

Eight-year-old Tessa Lee and her little brother, Travis, are left at a campground by their mother and her boyfriend, a crooked-nosed man named Goose. All the two children have is a tent, their bags of clothes, the firefly cloak they'd used for covers the night before, and a phone number printed in magic marker on Travis' back. Tessa Lee knows that her momma and Goose have skedaddled in a car with recently changed license plates. She just doesn't know why.So begins a journey that will take Tessa Lee into the home of her grandparents, then off in search of the mother she longs for. Her quest is steeped in Southern atmosphere and characters: the owner of the cheesy boardwalk show where Tessa Lee finds her mother and loses her again; the bingo-playing grandmother who holds her close; the old man who thinks the CIA is after him and boards up his house. Running throughout, like threads in a cloak, are themes of guilt, loss, and reunion.

Critic Reviews

"Uplifting in its explorations of family, forgiveness, and redemption." (Publishers Weekly)
"Reynolds' newest novel delivers more of the rich southern atmosphere and coming-of-age drama that made The Rapture of Canaan an Oprah Book Club selection and best seller." (Booklist)

Wow!

I picked this for Jenna Lamia's narration, believing she does the best Southern accent I've heard, distinctive without being overdone. I ended by being completely captivated by the story-tragic, humorous and unsentimental-and by the lively, brave Tessa Lee. I disagree with the reviewer who thought it dragged. At the end, I was wishing for six more chapters or so.

Excellent novel!

This is one of the best books I've listened to. The narrator does a fantastic job. The story is compelling, a bit sad at times, but worth listening to.
