Sometimes to find out where youâ€™re going, you have to discover what youâ€™ve left behind: Two teens hit the road in this breathtaking novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Improbability of Love at First Sight.
Emma and her neighbor Peter are both lonely in a way that only bothers them occasionally. They both come from families they donâ€™t quite understand. They both feel like something big is missing from their livesâ€”and theyâ€™re both about to search for answers. When Emma makes a discovery that shakes the foundations of her identity, she convinces Peter to join her for a road trip. Each of them has something to find: For Emma, it is a graveâ€”a grave that may be her only connection to her family. Peter is seeking something harder to define, but perhaps easier to navigateâ€”a freedom, a sense of something more than what he has. Together, they take to the open road, engaging in a universal quest to make sense of who they are and where they come fromâ€¦and learning a thing or two about love along the way.
