Grade 7–10—This book has as rocky a start as the road trip it describes. Emma, 16, feels disconnected from her family of academics and brilliant people. Rather than compete for attention, she's happier being alone. Then she discovers a reason for her feeling of isolation. She had a twin brother who died two days after they were born. Emma, determined to find out more, sets off on a road trip from New York State to North Carolina to see her brother's grave. When her car breaks down in New Jersey, she calls her neighbor Peter, who arrives in a stolen yellow convertible. Along the way, Emma adopts a stray dog, makes peace with her family, and learns that there's more to Peter than his interest in maps and the Civil War. Told in alternating chapters by Emma and Peter, the plot moves jerkily from the present to the past, then back to the present. After an uneven beginning, however, the novel becomes more engaging as Emma seeks answers to why she was never told about her brother.—Melissa Rabey, Frederick County Public Libraries, Frederick, MD

It was decent. I think the idea was interesting but the story was sort of boring at times. And I didn't really like the end. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Skye Pham

This was a great book but I wish the dog would have had a name:( I would have liked it to be a better ending also. I like her other books but not this one as much.Published 19 months ago by Sutton Saunders

I really loved the book. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I felt the ending was too opened-ended. I wanted one more chapter or an epilogue. Read morePublished on September 29, 2013 by Amazon Customer
