Isla-Skye Whittaker knows exactly what she doesn’t want.
Years of caring for a reclusive, terminally-ill mother will do that for you. But when packing up Ma’s things after the funeral, Isla finds a laptop with emails that paint a very different picture. She begins to wonder how well she actually knew her staid-old mom.
Driven by a strong sense of curiosity, um … duty, she sets out on a quest to find Ma’s odd collection of friends and personally deliver the news of her passing.
Griffin Stewart used to be the boy-next-door. He was also Isla’s best friend until a momentously awkward moment shredded their friendship at the age of 12. They ditched each other and moved on.
Now, Isla’s travels take her back to the old neighborhood, and right into Griffin’s backyard.
What starts as a simple road-trip soon escalates into an adventure that pushes Isla to the edge of all her never’s.
