When seventeen-year-old Honor's brother, Finn, dies in Iraq, her dreams of starting college in the fall seem trivial and unimportant. After finally reading a letter from Finn that he had written before his death, she finds two tickets to a Kyra Kelley concert, and a request to "tell her all about your handsome older brother." Honor decides to take Finn's old Impala from Texas to California, on a road trip to the concert. Finn's best friend, Rusty, comes along, providing Honor with comic relief, frustration, and eventually a love interest. The road trip proves cathartic to both Rusty and Honor, and the adventure allows both of them to mourn, celebrate, and share parts of Finn's life with one another, even in his absence. The story of Honor and Rusty's road trip offers moments of hilarity, potential romance, and spiritual awareness as the two travel across the desert to commemorate Finn's life. Honor moves through various stages of grief as she grapples with the death of her brother and her inability to say good-bye. The characters are entertaining, and their budding relationship is believable. Readers will find themselves rooting for the two to see past their differences and get together. This title is recommended for middle and high school readers of light romance, and those who appreciate accompanying characters on an emotional journey with interesting stops along the way.
