Summary
"Pearl's mother took her away from her family just weeks after she was born, and drove off to central Florida determined to begin a new life for herself and her daughter--in the parking lot next to a trailer park. Pearl grew up in the front seat of their '94 Mercury, while her mother lived in the back. Despite their hardships, mother and daughter both adjusted to life, making friends with the residents of the trailers and creating a deep connection to each other. All around them, Florida is populated with gun owners--those hunting alligators for sport, those who want to protect their families, and those who create a sense of danger"--Amazon.com
Summary
Growing up in the front seat of the car she shares with her mother in a lot beside a trailer park, Pearl suffers a terrible tragedy stemming from her mother's gun-toting boyfriend and is forced to survive on her own as she comes of age
