Seventeen-year-old Zoe Vidrine ran away from home, leaving behind an irresponsible, hippie mother, a dangerous living situation and her only sister, Alice. For 23 years, she lived a rock 'n' roll life and never contacted her family. Now pregnant, Zoe returns to the family farm, where Alice still lives and which Zoe feels is half hers. She's angry and sees Alice, now a minister's widow with a teenage son, as a goody two-shoes. Zoe distrusts everyone, making it hard when she's attracted to newspaper editor Joe Reeves. Leaving L.A. (3), by Rexanne Becnel, is interesting and enjoyable, with the emotional pull of the character's situations. The ending is unlikely in the neat, quick way the problems are wrapped up, and Zoe's anger and self-pity grow tiring.
