Book summary: I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could get away from this hellhole of a life. I knew that somewhere, there was something better. This was the beginning of a whole new adventure and I started to run away from home. At that time Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were big Movie Stars. They were adopting kids. I got the idea that maybe I could get them to adopt me! I wrote a letter to Roy and Dale and asked them if they would. I don't have to tell you. They didn't.

And you know what? She was right. It seemed like the more I whistled, the more trouble I got into. The trouble started out small, but would eventually balloon into bigger trouble. Why, you would think that I had been whistling with the power of a train whistle! Anyway, I turned around and headed back down that long highway towards home. After walking for what seemed like forever, a police car stopped and picked me up. I didn't know if he was looking for me or not, but he took me home. I told him that I was afraid that my gram would beat me. Wh
