Meet Rainy Cain, a tough, troubled, but very smart seventeen-year-old whose primary instinct is survival. Her mother checked out mentally years ago and her father died before she was born. Then one day she comes home from school to find her mother has checked out for good, a suicide, and days later she learns that her father is not remotely dead but has been in prison all these years for his part in an armored truck robbery gone murderously wrong. Now he has escaped and, believing that Rainy knows where her mother hid the missing robbery money, has come to claim his share.
Forcing Rainy to go with him, he and a young henchman set off on a cross-country dash to northern California where he suspects the cash is buried. On their heels the whole way is a Minneapolis cop intent on bringing Rainy safely home. It is an odyssey that will test Rainy’s considerable instincts, her definitions of sanity and madness, and will push her to the limits of her endurance — physically and mentally — in a desperate struggle to survive. And more than that: to live.
