Ross is dead, and Blake, Sim, and Kenny are furious. To make it right, they steal Ross’s ashes and set out from their home on the English coast for the tiny village of Ross in southern Scotland, a place their friend had always wanted to go. What follows is an unforgettable journey with illegal train rides, bungee jumping, girls, and high-speed police chases—all with Ross’s ashes along for the ride. As events spin wildly out of control, the three friends must take their heads out of the sand long enough to answer the question: What really happened to Ross?

    " This is a 3.5. I have to say at first I was bored by this book and the whole fact that it was British was a mark against it. This is a problem I have to get over with both British and Canadian books, but not Australian so much. Weird, I know. I always ask myself how the kids who read the books in the library will react to the references to tellies and loos and grade/year 9 stuff. Those are big deals to adolescent readers. However, the story in this book wins out over the British and even Scottish setting of the book. Blake, Sim and Kenny and their ROAD TRIP to Ross, Scotland to throw the ashes of their best friend Ross into the sea is a funny, endearing and thoughtful tale. It leaves no loose ends, but gives answers that may not be what we are looking for. I like it. "

    " An original take on death, loss, and grief. The characters don't mope around and whine like they do in other books *coughNewMooncough* where loss is a main theme. These characters are literally on the run! The title doesn't really go with the rest of the novel, so I wish whoever came up with the title had come up with something different. A fast-paced, action-packed read with plenty of teen angst and British-swears to go around! "

    " Once again a rather dull book about the relationship of three boys and their dead best friend. Sadly I found it lacked pazzas and I cionsequently got bored of it. It also I suppose was meant to have a heartbreaking ending, but it really just wasn't that good. "

    " Maybe 2.5 stars. It just wasn't that exciting. Funny in parts and the transformations that the boys go through is genuine (I think). It just wasn't something that I would choose when there are SO many other great things out there to read... "
