Destiny takes a detour in this heartbreakingly hilarious novel with five starred reviews, from the acclaimed author of Winger, which Kirkus Reviews called “smart” and “wickedly funny.”

Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly-insane-but-definitely-excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he’s ever loved.

Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken. Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned—and learn how to write their own destiny.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Finn’s musings about the universe’s constant dispersal and recycling of atoms, along with his habit for measuring time in the distance the Earth is forever racing around the sun, provide a memorable perspective on human (in)significance.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This unpredictable story of love and friendship is close to perfect.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “A wickedly witty and offbeat novel…a breathtaking read.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “A mosaic of recurring motifs, subtle symbolism, wonderfully funny bits, and the best birthday present ever make this a book that repays close attention; the current of genuine warmth that runs through it ensures multiple revisits and enthusiastic sharing.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

  • “John Green fans will enjoy Smith’s newest novel.”


  • “Narrator Kirby Heyborne’s measured, carefully enunciated narration reflects the contemplative nature of this seventeen-year-old…Heyborne captures their mirror-like personalities as they banter…Heyborne imbues [Julia] with a sweet mysteriousness.”


  • “I’m not sure I’ve ever laughed with, cried with, and rooted harder for a character than Finn Easton. His voice is so strong, so real, that his triumphs and failures felt like they were my own. I seriously loved this book.”

    Len Vlahos, author of The Scar Boys
