The residents of Hard Pan, California, come together to help Brigitte and Lucky when the County Health Department threatens to close down the cafe, and meantime Miles's life is complicated by his mother's return.
Having reached the mature age of eleven in the tiny California town of Hard Pan (population 43), Lucky discovers that there is still much to learn about friendship, parental trust, and the Milky Way galaxy.
The 2007 Newbery Medal winner is now in paperback. Lucky, age 10, doesn't expect running away to be so complicated. A large cast of magnanimous surprises awaits her when she plans to hide from her guardian in the Mojave Desert.
