In four hours, Shelby Jane Cooper will be struck by a car.

Shortly after, she and her mother will leave the hospital and set out on a winding journey toward the Grand Canyon.

All Shelby knows is that they’re running from dangers only her mother understands. And the further they travel, the more Shelby questions everything about her past—and her current reality. Forced to take advantage of the kindness of unsuspecting travelers, Shelby grapples with what’s real, what isn’t, and who she can trust . . . if anybody.

Award-winning author Nick Lake proves his skills as a master storyteller in this heart-pounding new novel. This emotionally charged thrill ride leads to a shocking ending that will have readers flipping back to the beginning.


Things I liked:

-At first i was pretty weirded out by the use of italics but after I got the explanation of why the book is written that way it made it more interesting.

Things I didn't like:

-This is not a flaw of the book itself just a personal preference. After reading this book the first thing I said to myself was to avoid magical realism I just don't enjoy it.

-Shelby's lack of empathy toward her birth parents really surprised me. I obviously didn't expect her to love them instantly but I did expect her to understand why they were trying so hard to get her to like them. For someone that wanted to be understood so much she didn't give other people the same courtesy.

Final Rating:
