Overview
A devastating loss leads to an unexpected road trip in this novel from the author of Moonglass, whose voice Sarah Dessen says "is fresh and wise, all at once."

Hours after her brother's military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen Rusty in ages, but it's obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever--not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor's better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn's memory--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

Just before heading to college, Honor is faced with attending the military funeral of her brother, Finn, who died fighting in Iraq. Overwhelmed and emotionally derailed by Finn's death, Honor decides to fulfill what turns out to be her brother's last wish—that she attend pop star Kyra Kelly's final concert halfway across the country in Los Angeles. As Honor is about to take off, her brother's best friend, the heavy-drinking Rusty, hops in Finn's old car to come along for the ride. Though Kirby's premise is well-tread, her storytelling is fresh and moving, and Rusty is swoon-worthy as Honor's unlikely romantic hero, all the more genuine for his faults. Moments of beauty, including a sunrise scuba dive and a desert thunderstorm, are poignantly tinged by Rusty and Honor's loss. Kirby doesn't promise a certain future for Rusty and Honor's relationship, but readers will root for the grieving girl with a Texas accent in cowboy boots and a dress as she heads into the unknown. A sweet and soulful summer romance that is worth the trip. Ages 14–up. Agent: Leigh Feldman, Writers House. (May)
