Benny, an eleven-year-old with Down syndrome and a love for action movies, decides to save his grieving dad from the dark halo of death, setting off a chain of adventures and accidental heroism that stretches from Ohio to Nevada.
Ray just wants to sleep. Racked with guilt and plagued by insomnia, he sees a road trip as a way to put distance on the memories that haunt him and his son in their empty house.
Grace knows what fate her memory lapses hold in store. Panicked and desperate to visit an icon from her past before she forgets it ever existed, she travels a route unplanned, in a car from the past, a white man at the wheel and his curious son in the back seat. She can't shake the feeling the boy controls the journey and something greater than their physical selves rides shotgun.
"I love how the author describes each character, especially Benny. He's funny and has an imagination ... I'm sure you will have a few chuckles along the way."
"It's not that I couldn't put it down, I didn't want to. The characters, the scenes, and the senses live and move from page to page, every character motivated to help the others -- even the bad guy."
