"Where the Heart Is", is a book from the perspective of Novalee Nation, a teenage girl that made a bad decision. Novalee meets Willy Jack Pickens, a boy illusion with becoming famous....but everything turned out wrong when Novalee turns out to be pregnant. Then the young couple travels from Tennessee to California with Novalee being "seventeen, seven months pregnant, thirty-seven pounds overweight, and superstitious about the number seven". Novalee convinces Willy to pull over at a Wal-mart in Sequoya, Oklahoma, so she can use the restroom and purchase a pair of sandals which hers fell of the car. When she finished with her shopping she realizes that her boyfriend left here stranded with nothing more than her beach bag and $7.77 in change from her purchase of her sandals. Novalee has no other place to go so she spends the day in Wal-mart where she meets three important people who would change her life for ever... In this heart warming book Billie Letts tells us about a girl trying to live as a single mother and how this experience would change her completely.
