Greer Sarazen is like any teenager. All she wants is to get her driver's license, to not be bugged by annoying people, and to NOT have her spring break interrupted. Yet, when her dad, Will – who has been unemployed due to downsizing – finally gets a job at the local cemetery, Greer is forced to tag along on a road trip to deliver a stranger’s ashes out of state. A stranded van, a clown, a rodeo, a disco-dancing nerd and a belligerent dwarf threaten to throw off the itinerary, while the departed “passenger” becomes an unexpected friend … proving that, sometimes, the things we truly need are the last things we would ever expect.

Teaser Excerpt

(Greer trying to convince her dad to open William’s shoe box)

“How much do you even know about William? There could be, like, psycho killers after us, who want whatever’s in that box! Didn’t you see Old Country for No Men? That guy was a FREAK!! And what was up with that haircut??”

Dad tries to rein in my processor overload. “It’s No Country for Old Men and since when do you watch R-rated movies?”

“Don’t ask questions you don’t want the answers to,” I scoff.

Dad fixes on me, aghast. So of course, I shift the blame.

“I was babysitting the Callahan kid and he was channel surfing, okay?”

“The Callahan kid doesn’t make the rules!” Dad spits.

“Oh yeah? You try dealing with him for a night.”
