Even though this is a book intended for young readers, I was captivated by the depth of the characters in the story. Each was unique and added humor, sensitivity and the allure of being a teenager again. I believe what frightens us most as we mature is the unknown, especially as it pertains to what life really holds for us.

Sals friend Phoebe camouflages her fears with conjecture and intrigue while Salamanca covers hers with humor and compassion. Her anecdotes are whimsical and entertaining. Underneath it all, however, is a heart full of sadness and longing, of trepidation and urgency.

Gram and Gramps add the element of stability and empathy that Sal needs in order to reach the end of her journey where she hopes to find her mother and the answers she already knows.

A great read for anyone at any age.
