Synopsis

Accommodations Requested: The Laylah Quentin Chronicles is a fast-paced tale of romance and adventure and the first of magical realist novel series. This book introduces readers to the enthralling exploits of an ordinary young girl living an extraordinary life. In the sleepy suburbs of upstate Wisconsin, a young girl, Laylah Quentin, finds herself abruptly thrust into the outrageous reality of the 1960s when her father dies. Greedy relatives arrive to collect their share of the inheritance, but when the stipulation is revealed that they must take custody of Laylah in order to receive the money, they conspire to get rid of her. She’s secretly shipped off with an enigmatic social worker to one of several unruly foster homes. Fantastic disasters and darkly humorous mishaps force her to become a runaway. At the height of her tumultuous journey, Laylah crosses paths with an immortal thief named Jesse and reinvents herself from a meek teenager into a fierce outlaw as he leads her on a nationwide crime spree.
