STONY LONESOME ROAD
Bonnie Shimko, author
Thirteen-year-old Jenny Barker is not a regular girl. She's a kid who has seen and heard every hateful, gross thing a human being is capable of doing or saying. When her meth-head parents are taken away, she gradually finds hope: an amazing musical talent she didn't know she had, Gracie Disher, a kindred spirit who lives right down the road, and Bo, a shopworn roadie from the Janis Joplin era who shows Jenny what a loving parent is like.
