PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Last Chance Texaco Fifteen years old and parentless, Lucy Pitt has spent the last eight years being shifted from one foster home to another. Now shes ended up at Kindle Home, a place for foster kids who arent wanted anywhere else. Among the residents, Kindle Home is known as the Last Chance Texaco, because its the last stop before being shipped off to the high-security juvenile detention center on nearby Rabbit Islandbetter known as Eat-Their-Young Island to anyone who knows what its really like.But Lucy finds that Kindle Home is different from past group homes, and she soon decides she wants to stay. Problem is, someone is starting a series of car-fires in the neighborhood in an effort to get the house shut down. Could it be Joy, a spiteful Kindle Home resident? Or maybe its Alicia, the bony blond supermodel-wannabe from the local high school who thinks Lucy has stolen her boyfriend. Lucy suspects it might even be Emil, the Kindle Home therapist, who clearly has a low opinion of the kids he counsels. Whoever it is, Lucy must expose the criminal, or shell lose not just her new home, but her one last chance for happiness.In the tradition of S.E. Hintons The Outsiders and Louis Sachars Holes, Hartinger writes about a subculture of teenagers many people would like to forget, in a novel as fast-paced and provocative as his first book, Geography Club.
