Eight-year-old Tessa Lee and her little brother, Travis, are left behind at a campground by their mother and her boyfriend, a crooked-nosed man named Goose, with little more than the firefly cloak theyd used for covers the night before.

So begins a journey that will take Tessa Lee in search of the mother she longs for. Her quest is steeped in Southern atmosphere and characters: the owner of the cheesy boardwalk show where Tessa Lee finds her mother and loses her again; the bingo-playing grandmother who holds her close; the old man who thinks the CIA is after him and boards up his house. Running throughout, like threads in a cloak, are themes of guilt, loss, and reunion.

    " This book was okay. The story drew me in to finish to see that she was okay. "

    " This is was a challenging book for me in that it was very raw. It is the story of a grandmother (Lil), her daughter (Sheila), and her daughter's daughter (Tessa Lee). The grandmother has been very stiff and rule bound in the past. The daughter rebelled and ended up participating in dysfunctional activities such as stripping and engaging in prostitution while abusing drugs. Finally, the daughter is trying to sort out her relationship with both of them, particularly because her and her brother were abandoned by her mother to her grandmother. One particular haunting scene, **Spoiler** is when Tessa Lee somehow thinks it is a good idea to get her nipple pierced. Yikes! The ending was looking toward new beginnings for the three generations. Very sad reading for me, it really brought me down. "

    " Good book - Couldn't put it down. Quick, easy read. Sad, the crazy lives some people live. For some reason, I kept picturing the main character as a young girl, 8 or 10 years old, even though she's 16. I just couldn't get the image out of my head. Also kept picturing the story as taking place 50 or 60 years ago, even though it is supposed to be current day. I got over that by the end, but just had this concrete picture in my mind. I think I was picturing a similar scene to The Secret Life of Bees. "

    " I enjoyed the book, it's a great story told from a young girl who was abandoned by her mother as a child. I admire the grandmother who is able to open her heart and mind, push pass her prejudices and love unconditionally. "
