Summary:Fourteen-year-old Angel wakes up one morning at her desert trailer home to discover her mother has been murdered by a lowlife named Scotty, who has vanished. Angel has no water, no weapon, but she knows that Scotty, an expert tracker and hunter, will surface soon in order to eliminate her as a witness. She has to run, to disappear, if she is to survive and tell the world what happened. Her flight takes her through a harsh landscape to places she never expected to be, forcing her to trust others for the first time and strengthening her in ways she doesn’t even anticipate . . . until it’s time to take a stand.

Review: This book was not what I had anticipated, based on the covwer. But I enjoyed the story. I love Angel and the drive she has to keep going, although giving up would be much easier. I loved the characters who took her in and loved her, showing her that all hope was not lost. There are some violent scenes, so readers beware!!!
