Nineteen-year-old Tessa is suddenly tasked with spreading her great aunt's ashes all over the US and Canada so the rest of her relatives can receive their inheritance. After her initial dismay, she finds the road trip full of mystery and surprises. Old family secrets, girlfriend problems, and beautiful sunsets accompany her as she honors her aunt's wishes.


"Like all good road trips, this one is packed with self-discoveries. Tessa's travels and her self-realizations will resonate with readers. Overall, it is her lust for adventure and independence more than the mysteries of her past and future that will keep readers engaged." —Jaclyn Anderson, School Library Journal

"This book has a beautiful plot and an amazing ending." —Shirley Yan, Voya Magazine

"A mystery, a road trip, and a romance, the story of 19-year-old Tessa's summer will appeal to many different teenage and adult readers. The road trip for family secrets aspect of the story reminded me of Jonathan Friesen's Jerk, California, though that novel had no LGBT content." —Carolyn Caywood,
