Hitchhike

10.00

by Isabelle Holland

“As long as I avoid the creeps, I’ll be okay,” thought Pud.

Pud stood by the side of the road. “I can do it,” she thought. “I’ll hitch with people like me and avoid the creepy ones. Easy. I know how to tell the difference and can take care of myself.”

Pud was teaching her father a lesson. Canceling their backpacking trip for a very important business trip definitely had been a put-down. “His trips always come first,” Pud angrily told herself. “Well, I’ll show him what I think of his sacred pursuit of money. I’ll spend the airfare and hitchhike home.”

When Pud takes to the highway, she learns that people are not always what they seem—a discovery that shatters her self-confidence, dangerously propelling her down roads she would rather never have known.

Published by Dell (1977) for its Laurel Leaf Library series. This copy’s seen some use, and the front cover’s starting to separate from the text, but all the pages are present and intact. It’s also got that inimitable sweet scent of cheap paperbacks from this era. As for the subject matter, it’s kind of trashy but only if you’re in, like, 7th grade. A quick and fun read.

124-page paperback book.
