Del is looking for a break. She's been bounced from foster home to foster
home, surviving by imitating those around her. She's scrimped and saved
in order to break-out from her stifling L.A. surroundings. Breakout takes
place simultaneously in the all-day traffic jam that entraps Del on her
way out of town and eight years later in her one-woman show about what
she learned from being stuck in the jam. (Jean B. Bellavance for
Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
