Publisher Comments:

Luke left his old life—his dead mother, his alcoholic father—behind in New York City when he came to Moab, Utah, eight months ago. Seventeen years old and technically a runaway, he found work and a new home at a youth hostel nestled in the red sandstone valley. Now, he has reinvented himself as a guy who lives for the present, and it seems to be working—particularly when it comes to his relationship with his beautiful co-worker, Tangerine.

Back in New York, nineteen-year-old Ava is struggling through her own transformation—from drunk to recovering alcoholic. How could she have gotten so out of control? Almost sixty days sober, she’s not sure she can keep it up. But someone she meets at an AA meeting changes her mind, and a strange coincidence—or is it more than that?—brings Ava west to Moab as well.

Living on the edge, caught between the pain of the past and the possibilities of the future, Luke and Ava both discover that in this mysterious world, hope sometimes comes from the most unlikely places.

Synopsis:

After his mother dies and his father begins drinking again, 16-year-old Luke leaves New York City and heads to Moab, Utah. Back in New York, 18-year-old Ava finally admits she has a drinking problem. When circumstances--or fate--bring Ava to Moab as well, she and Luke both must figure out how to heal their families and themselves.
