Allie and Bea

by Catherine Hyde

Bea is ripped off by computer scammers and her bank account is cleared out. The only thing she has left is her cat and an old bakery van that belonged to her deceased husband. When she is left homeless after not being able to pay rent, or any other bills, she gathers up her cat and jumps in the van and begins to drive.

When 15 year old  Allie’s parents are jailed for tax fraud, she’s sent to a group home. Her life is threatened by her room mate, and Allie knows she must escape. She has nowhere to go - until fate throws Allie in Bea’s path.

Trust is a huge issue between the both of them but as barriers begin to come down the old lady and young girl become friends. They make their way up the Pacific Coast, meeting people and forging friendships along the way, seeing an imperfect world through new eyes.

I was really glad to see a new book from this author as I have read all the books we hold by her, and have enjoyed them all. Her characters are very likable.

This book can be found in the General Fiction section.
