Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jonah and his younger brother, Simon, are on their own. They set out to find whats 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 Vietnam. 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. Theyre going to need it.

 

Synopsis:

Two brothers leave home looking for their father, and find themselves hitching a ride with a violent killer - here is a road trip from hell.

The road trip from hell.

Synopsis:

Jonah and his younger brother, Simon, are on their own. All they have left in the world is ten dollars, a backpack full of dirty clothes, and a stack of letters from their older brother, whos fighting in the war. Theyre on their way to Arizona when they catch a ride from a couple. The girl is friendly—and beautiful. But the man is different, maybe dangerous, maybe deadly. Its a good thing Jonah and Simon packed one more thing in their bag . . . a gun.
