A devastating loss leads to an unexpected road trip in this novel from the author of Moonglass , whose voice Sarah Dessen says "is fresh and wise, all at once."

Hours after her brother's military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen Rusty in ages, but it's obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever--not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor's better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn's memory--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

Honor's brother died while serving in the military, and a letter he left spurs Honor and her brother's childhood best friend to take off on a cross country road trip to fulfill what they think are his dying wishes. A wonderful story!

Haha, she left us hanging at the end. But the trip there was so intriguing, great to read, that the what if was worth it.

I really liked Rusty and Honor. I thought they would have made a great and cute couple. Unfortunatley the author decided to let all the readers wonder. I did not like the ending. The book was great but the ending wasn't the best. I love when there is a happy ending and i hate not knowing whats left to happen. Just my opinion.
