"[A] standout travel memoir...Gilman's descriptions of their trials and tribulations crackle with wit." (Booklist )
"Youthfully upbeat, Gilman delivers an entertaining memoir...offering the full wallop of disorienting, in-the-moment, transformative travel adventures." (Publishers Weekly )
"[An] ambitious and intimate coming-of-age memoir." (Kirkus )
"With her trademark intelligent, irreverent voice Gilman takes us on a journey that feels terrifyingly real, immediate and life-threatening. The woman is no less than a godsend to a reading world that has become too used to lies, half-truth and spin."
