It was 1957, I was twelve years old, me and my mother June were gassing up the Buick at the filling station in Welch, West Virginia, on our way to the rest of our lives. " So begins this novel, a funny and tender road story of a mother and daughter's search for the turn on the map that will bring them the good life. June uproots her daughter Lily from her West Virginia home, only to fall prey to a world as dangerous and absurd as the one they left behind. Through Lily's poignant, precocious, and often comic observations, we begin to unravel the delicate tangling of mother-daughter emotions, of two hearts in unison headed ultimately for separate destinations. 211 pages. The binding has a bit of wear at the top corners. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
