"Delightful, unforgettable, and quirky--another brilliant work by one of today's finest storytellers." --Ann Tatlock, award-winning author of All the Way Home
To say Bones isn't thrilled with his dead-end job at the Venus Motel would be an understatement. But when you're fifteen years old with no family, expecting any prospects for your future feels pretty pointless. You just have to roll with the whims of the powers that be. And motel owner, Calico Foster, can't keep herself afloat, much less rescue a lost kid. A job is all she can offer.
Why blues-playing magician Jimmy La Roux chooses the Venus to land at when he rolls out of the desert and into the parking lot is more than anyone knows. But with a rattle of Harley pipes and a cloud of dissipating dust, he roars in, fresh from blasting through the cosmos, ready to change all of their lives. And he's wielding a magic box that makes anything that goes into it disappear forever . . .
Welcome to the Venus Motel, where a million stars dance above the neon and things are almost never what they seem.
"Tears of joy met me on the pages of this book as I traced the path from brokenness to redemption in each character. The reminder that our past doesn't have to dictate how our story ends is eclipsed only by the lesson that love cannot be earned." --Robert Case, Senior Pastor, Calvary Chapel Eastside
