Dylan doesn't have a lot of experience with comfort. His room in the falling-down Village Estates can generously be categorized as "squalid," and he sure as hell isn't getting any love from his mother, who seemed to -- no, definitely did -- enjoy the perks that went along with being the parent of a "cancer kid." His only escape has been in the form of his favorite video game -- World of Warcraft -- and the one true friend who makes him feel understood, even if it is just online: Nuba. And now that Dylan is suddenly in remission, he wants to take Nuba on a real mission, one he never thought he'd live to set out on: a journey to a mysterious ship in the middle of the Salton Sea. But Nuba -- real-life name Arden -- is fighting her own battles, ones that Dylan can't always help her win. As they navigate their way west, they grapple with Nuba's father (who refuses to recognize his daughter's true gender), Dylan's addiction, and the messy, complicated romance fighting so hard to blossom through the cracks of their battle-hardened hearts.

My new favorite road trip novel! A beautiful story about taking charge of your own life and connecting with those who accept you for who you are. Dylan is in remission and addicted to medications and struggles to get along with a mother who only takes advantage of his situation. Arden lives with a father who refuses to accept her as she is. They've only met online playing World of Warcraft, but when Dylan shows up on Arden's doorstep, they decide to abscond across the country on their first real life mission. A fun, endearing read.
