This is a crazy book and I loved it! Trudy Johnson lives a sad life: no money, a bad factory job, sad living conditions. She meets a daredevil in the making, Jules Tremblay, who is planning to do a crazy car jump over the local river. He is in no better shape than she is but there is something about him that draws Trudy to him. Enter the world of mishaps and adventures for Trudy, Jules, Claire (Trudy’s mother), and Mercy (Trudy’s niece). Plus, Trudy’s long gone sister returns and all hell breaks loose.
