Riding from Oklahoma to St. Louis next to the astonishing Pookie Adams, eighteen-year-old Jerry Payne little realizes that he is at the beginning of his most memorable love affair.While Pookie gets off at St. Louis, she pursues Jerry by letter and then in person–and before he knows it, he's involved with a seemingly crazy, startlingly honest girl. Pookie helps Jerry leave behind his beer-blasted frat self as she teaches him to open his heart to her. Then, suddenly, she disappears, leaving in her wake an eternal trail of love and wonder.

Eighteen-year-old Jerry Payne first meets Pookie Adams at the Friarsburg, Oklahoma, bus depot and is overwhelmed by her zany, rambling monologue. Over the next two years, Pookie teaches Jerry to grow beyond his beer-blasted, fraternity mentality and to open his heart to her, until she disappears from his life as rapidly as she entered it.
