In this YA novel, Kaileigh, who becomes orphaned during her teen years, bounces around state-funded foster care before she is finally placed with a couple who care about her well-being. Driven to never become anyone's obligation and to stand on her own, the teen aces her high school years and takes on a few night classes in music theory at the local college.
She spends her time being alone and organized: two features of her personality that suit her just fine.
With the learned trade of writing to fund a small but steady cash flow, Kaileigh buys a used Dolphin motor home from the lady down the street and hits the road once the state recognizes her eighteenth year milestone.
Through a series of adventures and mishaps, the young lady finds herself tapping at her laptop in the booth of an Italian restaurant and winds up getting more than a story and a plate of rigatoni when she meets the owner of the restaurant, who introduces Kaileigh to her pop star brother.
Unexpectedly, Kaileigh finds herself being not quite as alone as she had become accustomed.

About the Author
Although the majority of inspiration for my writing comes from the historical fiction genre, I do also write westerns with a slant to historical events, some children's work and I've written one YA story. My published books include Summer Rain, Rich Fabric (contributing author), A Dolphin For One and Rebellion in the Valley; keep your eyes peeled for the last two stories in the the Valley trilogy: Anticipation in the Valley and Renewal in the Valley, both due for release in 2014! Rebellion in the Valley is a western with a hint of historical facts based on events occurring in the Wet Mountain Valley of Colorado in the 1870s. Check my blog at [robynleatherman dot com] for all upcoming news relating to my progress with the Valley trilogy - as well as occasional giveaways and contests! As I expand my avenues for writing, please join me [TheOneAMPen] on Wattpad. I study and speak my native tongue of Tsalagi (Cherokee), enjoy beading & custom jewelry making on my downtime as well as creating one of a kind, original Barbie dollhouses and miniature dollhouses. Feel free to email me if you are interested in my crafting work, if you would like to ask about my writing or schedule an interview. Thanks for leaving reviews on Amazon and right here on Smashwords!
