Ali Collins doesn’t have room in her life for clutter or complications. So when her estranged father passes away and leaves her his only prized possession—a 1968 Firebird convertible—Ali knows she won’t keep it. Not when it reminds her too much of all her father’s unfulfilled promises. And especially not when a buyer three hundred miles up the Pacific coast is offering enough money for the car to save her childhood home from foreclosure. There’s only one problem, though. Ali has no idea how to drive a stick shift.

But her ex-boyfriend, Nico, does.

The road trip gets off to a horrible start, filled with unexpected detours, roadblocks, and all the uncomfortable tension that comes with being trapped in a car with your ex. But when Nico starts collecting items from the quirky strangers they meet along the way, Ali starts to sense that these objects aren’t random. Somehow they seem to be leading her to an unknown truth about her father. A truth that will finally prove to Ali that some things—even broken things—are worth saving.

I love a good road trip book.  This one comes out October 2nd.

    Okay, I grew up around classic cars and that alone is reason for me to want this one. Also, things like this are why I’m glad my father forced me to learn to drive a standard. He put me in one and told me I had to get back to college somehow. I avoided hills with stoplights for months. I actually prefer standards but don’t have one now. So I totally went off track. I’m gonna look for a copy of this one. Thanks for sharing!
