Summary
This novel's heroine is Taylor Greer ... She grew up poor in rural Kentucky with two goals: to avoid pregnancy and to get away. She succeeds on both counts when she buys a '55 Volkswagen and heads west. But by the time this plucky if unlikely heroine pulls up on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, at an auto repair shop called Jesus is Lord Used Tires that also happens to be a sanctuary for Central American refugees, she's inherited a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle. What follows as Taylor meets the human condition head-on is at the heart of this novel about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places
