About the Book

On Christmas Day, Junior arrives at his father’s junkyard trailer home for their once a year holiday meal only to find his Pop murdered. Seizing an opportunity from this tragedy, Junior decides to take his Pop’s car and the cash he saved. But he can’t leave without saving his best friend Courtney from her drunken, sexually abusive father. Junior picks Courtney up and together they head off with a vague destination of maybe Mexico. In the glove box of Pop’s car they find a priceless Russian icon. They deposit the icon in a pay locker in a bus station in Pennsylvania. They pick up Hunter, a hitchhiker, who tries to rape Courtney and steals their cash so that they are nearly broke. They find work and continue their odyssey, not knowing that Hunter has teamed up with Courtney’s father to hunt them down and steal the icon.
