Great easy read with fun characters that I really got to like. Lutie and Fate are abandoned by their father and he leaves them with his girlfriend when he runs off to Vegas. When the woman dies Lutie and Fate are on their own - scared of becoming foster kids they take the car and $300 they are able to find in their home and head off to Vegas in search of their father. Only 15 years old Lutie has dreams of becoming a star but she soon realizes life in Vegas is not easy and help from a very kind mysterious stranger saves their lives.

Billie Letts is a master of describing the redemptive powers of family love -- even when the family is cobbled together from an unexpected cast of characters. Lovely book.

Excellent book! The story of a teenage girl and younger brother leaving their trbouled life behind in SD to travel to Las Vegas to find a father that never cared about them. This is the story of what they do to survive on the streets of Las Vegas. Gritty stuff for Lutie to deal with and her young brother wanting to fit in at a decent school. Lutie and Fate must learn to trust again and find a "family" in an unexpected way.

I definitely recommended this one! The author does an excellent job of telling Lutie's story as well as her brother, Fate's story as well. Good description of the characters and the situations. Loved it!
