The bestselling author of Where the Heart Is returns with a heartrending tale of two children in search of a place to call home. With her mother long dead and her father long gone to find his fortune in Vegas, fifteen-year-old Lutie lives with her twelve-year-old brother, Fate, and Floy Satterfield, her father's 300-pound ex-girlfriend. While shopping in their local Wal-Mart, Floy keels over. Faced with the choice of becoming wards of the state of hightailing it out of town in Floy's old Pontiac, the kids head off in search of a father who has no know address, no phone number and, clearly, no interest in the kids he left behind.
