|Plot Summary of Oh My Stars|
|"Violet Mathers can't figure out why her mother ran off with another man and left her with her mean, ornery father. Getting no affection and no attention from him, she gets her first job in a thread factory where an accident on her 16th birthday shapes her life.
Determined to end her life, she boards a bus for San Francisco to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. The bus breaks down and she meets two unsual and incredible men who become her best friends (and one her husband). They travel the Midwest, playing guitar and singing - this white man and black man - with Violet as the manager of the Pearltones, America's newest favorite singers in the late 1930's.
Violet, Austin and Kjel are friends, companions, business partners and roadies in this heart-warming novel of disability, charm, talent, racial prejudice and small-town loyalty. "
