A Rambler Steals Home

Garland, Derby, and Triple Clark spend each season traveling highways and byways in their Rambler -- until summer, when small-town Ridge Creek, Virginia, calls them back. There they settle in, selling burgers and fries out of Garland's Grill after each game the Rockskippers play in their battered minor-league baseball stadium. Derby's summer traditions bring her closer than she's ever been to a real home that isn't on wheels, but this time, her return to Ridge Creek reveals unwelcome news. Now the person Derby loves most in town needs her help -- and yet finding a way to do so may uncover deeply held stories and secrets.

Told in Derby's unforgettable voice, this warm-hearted debut novel is about taking risks, planting roots, and discovering the true definition of home.

"Garland believes that 'being a rambler of the road meant three things: food, family, and fun,' but their itinerant lifestyle means loneliness for Derby, rooted in the absence of her mother, who disappeared years ago. This year, the 11-year-old grapples with changes in her relationships with her best friend Marcus and nemesis Betsy, while uncovering secrets from the past....readers will easily connect with the story’s reflections on belonging, hope, family, and the meaning of home." -- Publishers Weekly
