Road trips are supposed to be fun. They’re supposed to be about adventure, not about making it to the other side of the country before your estranged father dies. It’s not supposed to be with your two younger siblings, a half-sister you’ve never met, and her step-brother. Oh, and it’s not supposed to be done on $400 or less in a station wagon that barely runs.

This is the predicament that Michelle Deveraux finds herself in after her mom’s drug addiction has landed her in jail once again. Her father, Buck, has begged to see her and has promised an heirloom that could finally ease their money troubles once and for all. The trip from Baltimore to L.A. will be less than easy, but along the way Michelle will learn a lot about family, friendship and judging someone before you know the full story. Full of plenty of adventures and misadventures, this is one road trip you don’t want to miss.
