About the Novel:
Lucky is a 10-year-old girl living in a small town in the California desert. Her mother has been dead for two years, at which point Brigitte became her primary guardian. Lucky fears that Brigitte will become tired of her new life as Lucky's guardian. When Lucky finds Brigitte's suitcase and passport laid out, her fears start to become reality. As a result of her abandonment issues, Lucky seeks help from her "Higher Power". After discovering three "signs" to leave, Lucky runs away with her dog during a sandstorm. During this great misadventure, she inadvertently saves the life of a child. At the end, Lucky and Brigitte are reunited and it becomes clear to Lucky that Brigitte has no intention of ever abandoning her new life.
