After many days of walking along highways and sleeping in abandoned homes, Dicey realized that they will not be able to make it to Bridgeport unless she can get more money. She found work at gas stations scrubbing windows and stocking shelves, while James, Maybeth and Sammy waited outside for her, trying not to draw too much attention. Throughout the story Dicey was forced to lie for the safety of her brothers and sister. She is learning that not everyone can be trusted, and that life may never get easier.
This book is very unreallistic, and the family only seems to have good fortune, despite the situation they are in.
