Overview

Tammi Jean Cook is sixteen. She is also psychic. So when Tammi Jean hitches a ride from a long-haul trucker named Elvis P. Boone, she knows that when she reaches California she's going to find her daddy . . . even though everyone claims he's dead.

As they travel from the kudzu-choked fields of Alabama to the scenic hills of California, Tammi Jean and Elvis become friends as the miles click by on the Kenworth's odometer. They also encounter people like a young woman fleeing for her life; an old Cherokee woman, who warns Tammi Jean of the risks in knowing anyone's destiny; and a man with frightening plans for one innocent child's future.

There's also the Man-in-Black. Another long-haul trucker, he too is headed for California; and along the way he challenges Tammi Jean to explore the darker side of being psychic.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Tammi Jean and Elvis P. Boone are such wonderfully creative--and likeable--characters. and the story is highly original, as well as entertaining. It contains mystery, suspense, adventure, and humor. A great read.
