Lucky lives in a trailor with her dad’s second wife, Brigitte, who talks of her home in France with longing.  When Lucky finds Brigitte’s suitcase on the bed full of papers and a passport, Lucky is sure Brigitte is planning to desert her.  A seasoned eavesdropping veteran of many twelve-step meetings, Lucky is sure that the solution lies in finding her own Higher Power and runs away from home in a dust storm to try to find it. 

Though the characters are unique, I found this story rather flat and purposeless.
