Jonah and his younger brother, Simon, are on their own. They set out to find what’s left of their family, carrying between them ten dollars, a backpack full of dirty clothes, a notebook, and a stack of letters from their brother, who is serving a tour in the army. And soon into their journey, they have a ride. With a man and a beautiful girl who may be in love with Jonah. Or Simon. Or both of them.

The man is crazy. The girl is desperate. This violent ride is only just beginning. And it will leave the brothers taking cover from hard truths about loyalty, love, and survival that crash into their lives.

One more thing: The brothers have a gun. They’re going to need it. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This book (the author actually) is a favorite of a friend of mine and she re-read all of Andrew Smith's books over the summer. Because of her begging (read: nagging ;)) I reluctantly picked up this book. Reluctantly, because it just didn't seem like something I would like -- brothers on the road, psychopath that picks them up -- bleh. I was wrong. Within 10 pages I was hooked and really enjoyed this book. I love when that happens. :) I just may read the rest of Smith's books as well. :) "

    " Jonah and Simon are trying to grow up and get out their current disaster of a life. Hitchhiking leads them on an adventure they will never forget and a cast of characters whose motives may or may not be pure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 P.J. | 1/20/2014

    " Book 58 for 2010. Andrew Smith's books have a way of making me have to turn the pages to see what's going to happen. I loved THE MARBURY LENS (Nov. 2010) and am equally impressed with this one. Highly recommended for boys and girls, upper middle school and up. "

    " This was such a bad audio book. The narrator was not convincing at ALL and did not make me care about the story or the characters. The sound quality was a bit all over, as well. I'm disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 12/13/2013

    " Kind of a slow book but still another amazing book by Andrew Smith "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward Sullivan | 12/9/2013

    " Fast-paced, dark, and riveting story with lots of suspense but also a lot of thoughtful depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mokamonkey | 4/23/2013

    " Well-written and all of that, but it was obvious the main character and his brother were headed into a train wreck the whole way. Hard to make myself keep reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/24/2013

    " I read half the book before it got good. I would not recomend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Bartels | 12/4/2012

    " Good, good stuff here, and really edge of your seat stuff. This is a violent, wild, cross country journey and it is well worth the miles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn Stelson | 4/28/2012

    " I thought, this was a really interesting book about two brothers' going on a road trip, that becomes a coming of age story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred | 11/18/2011

    " A pretty dark story; definitely the road trip from hell. One psycho, one pregnant flirt, and two brothers seeking a future and escaping a past. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deidra | 11/12/2011

    " Very surprised by this book. When I started reading it, I was pretty sure that it would end up being stupid and possibly supernatural in nature. As it turns out, it's just a really good book about a road trip that doesn't go well. It's a fast read with just enough meat in it to keep you involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 8/22/2011

    " Extremely well-written and populated with one of the nastiest characters I've read in literature, I almost didn't make it through this book but, boy, was it worth finishing. This is definitely a writer to follow closely. An amazing roller-coaster of a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 6/19/2011

    " Good, good stuff here, and really edge of your seat stuff. This is a violent, wild, cross country journey and it is well worth the miles.

    " Have you ever been a road trip from hell? I'm sure you have and I'm also sure it wasn't as bad as Jonah's and Simon's journey. It's a nightmare-ish fast-paced read and I enjoyed every minute.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 5/1/2011

    " More graphic than I expected and somewhat of a depressing read. This is not the happy ending sort of book. It is a very engaring and intense read... "

    " This is an exciting, fast paced, thrilling story about 2 brothers and the worst road trip imaginable. The character of Mitch is truly bone-chilling and I loved/hated the bits that were from his perspective. "
