WELCOME TO THE SLIPSTREAM      

Out now from Simon Pulse

Seventeen-year-old Van and her peripatetic lifestyle-loving mom move to Las Vegas. Van's mother, Sofia, has been hired to helm the Silver Saddle, a crumbling casino off the strip. In Vegas, Van makes new friends, and is even invited to join an all girl, Sleater-Kinney-style band. Van--and the Silver Saddle--are left in the lurch when the brilliant but unstable Sofia disappears on a vision quest. Van buys a bus ticket, setting off into the desert to track Sofia down and bring her home.
