Defining Dulcie, by Paul Acampora

Not the typical "teen underdog" story. I mean, what high school student would be willing to be a school janitor (for a co-op position). But, it would appeal to the quirky set.

From the publisher's blurb

After Dulcie’s dad dies, her mom decides that the two of them shouldreinvent themselves in California. Dulcie’s decision? To steal her dad’s ’68 Chevy and head back home to Connecticut. Once Dulcie gets there she meets Roxanne, a girl whose scary home life makes Dulcie think that she just might have landed in the right spot at the right time. Luckily for Roxanne, Dulcie Morrigan Jones is a girl with a storehouse of strength and generosity of spirit that stretches on for miles.

Quirky, uplifting, and written in a spare prose, Defining Dulcie is about the connections we make, the resilience of the human spirit, and the absurdities that keep life interesting. It is a debut not to be missed.
