Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

 Lacey Dawn's life isn't all that great. Her parents are self-centered and abusive. The hollow where they live is far enough out in the country to be private. Neighbors work their illegal businesses and Lacey Dawn is stuck all alone. Can she change things with the help of a special friend? Only time will tell.
 
I'm not sure what to say about this book. The base story of Lacey Dawn's life is good. The other stuff doesn't make sense. It seems to ramble on and go nowhere. It's not one I'd recommend. 


     I did find issues. Half of the story is just random things thrown together. It really doesn't tell a story. *UPDATE*
After rereading this book I find in the newest edition, the issues have been fixed. The book reads more smoothly and comes together in a better way. In light of this, I've changed my rating.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5.

Blurb:
Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.
