MINER: Nowhere to Call Home Chapters: 1-7
I believe that in her hobo life that is the name she will go by.
I think this is foreshadowing that she won't end up going to Chicago.
I think she will find out just how much she was spoiled.
I think that Frankie Blue will be her name when she becomes famous at playing music.
I think this means that Frankie has a crush on Stewpot.
I think that this may be the most important quote of the book.
-Chapters 11-13 Page 89:
"People don't ask to loose their jobs and get thrown out on the street."

I think Stew is getting worse and Frankie is going to admit she likes him and show who she is.
Stew is getting worse and Frankie is scared for him.
I think that Frankie liked/cared for Stew a lot more than she let on and it kills her that she never got to tell him.
I think that her aunt welcomes her in with open arms and she pursues her dream of becoming a pianist.
