Greetings from Nowhere
Loretta: who is on a trip with her adopted parents and they are following the charms on her mother's bracelet to remember Loretta's birth mother
Willow: whose dad is trying to buy the motel and start a new life for their family
Kirby: who is on his way to reform school when his mother's car breaks down
Each chapter is written from the point of view of a different character. I personally fell in love with Aggie, an older lady who is struggling with wonderful memories of the past, confronted with present decisions, and encounters relationships with all of the guests at the motel that will change her future.
Also, here is a link to a discussion guide that I found while perusing Barbara O'Connor's blog.
Barbara O'Connor seems to be my "author of the summer". I have read several books written by her. All of her books have heartfelt stories with interesting characters and influential settings.
