Summary "After a day of being dumped--by both her husband and her lover--and accidentally killing a goose, a thirtysomething-year-old woman yearns for a vacation far from the chaos of her life. Instead, her tropical fantasies are dampened by her best friend's four-year-old deaf-mute son, Tumi, who has been thrust into her reluctant care. The unlikely pair start on tentative footing; she doesn't have the slightest maternal instinct, and Tumi is an introspective oddball. But when he chooses the winning numbers for a lottery ticket, they set off on a road trip with a glove compartment stuffed full of their jackpot earnings"--Jacket flap.
