author: Carolyn Mackler

Ever since Vís mom dumped her with her grandparents, sheís bounced from guy to guy. That is, until a fateful hockey puck lands her in the lap of Sam Almond, who is different from the start. But V makes an irreversible mistake at her graduation party and risks losing Sam forever, spurring her on a crosscountry road trip to visit her mom in hopes of putting two thousand miles between herself, Sam, and the wreckage of that night. With humor and compassion, Carolyn Mackler takes readers on an unforgettable ride of missed exits, misadventures, and the kind of epiphanies that come only when youíre on a route youíve never taken before.

"Macklerís unsentimental feel for how kids think and talk, and how they go about entering the grown-up world, makes Vís journey engrossing." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOKS REVIEW
