Profoundly moving story (get it? because it's about a road trip?) with a diverse cast of unique characters each with their own story. The book will make you laugh then cry then laugh some more and then cry again. A truly unique twist on the teenage road trip.

"Seventeen-year-old Leila is driving across the U.S. to Alaska, determined to see the Northern Lights. Why? That depends on who's asking. Leila gives a different answer to each person she meets on the way: mechanic Hudson, hitchhiker Bree, lovesick Elliot, and grieving Sonia. Though Leila boldly encourages each of them to live honestly, she keeps readers guessing about her own past until the very end. Fans of books like John Green's Paper Towns or Nina LaCour's The Disenchantments, as well as anyone who longs for the open road, will enjoy this "achingly beautiful" (School Library Journal) ride."

Mysterious teen Leila road trips to Alaska to see the Northern Lights and along the way befriends four strangers who are all coping with loss. She assists them with their relationships and finds a romance of her own. This debut novel maintains its sense of adventure and boundless optimism from start to finish. Although it veers into cheesy territory at times,it will win you over with its upbeat message: Never underestimate the kindness of strangers.

A wonderful coming of age story told from teenage Leila's point of view. Leila's journey to see the Northern Lights turns out to be more than just a road trip. Each chance meeting that comes along provides some new insight or special message for each of them and enables Leila to finally discover where home really is. Written with authentic teen voices this story will appeal to readers at all levels.
