Author: Sheryl Benko
Cover Illustrator: Leon Joosen


Greer Sarazen is like any teenager. All she wants is to get her driver’s license, to not be bugged by annoying people, and to NOT have her spring break interrupted. But when her dad, Will – who has been unemployed due to downsizing – finally gets a job at the local cemetery, Greer is forced to tag along on a road trip to deliver a stranger’s ashes out of state.

A stranded van, a clown, a rodeo, a disco dancing nerd and a bitter dwarf threaten to throw off the itinerary, while the mysterious man in the urn becomes an unexpected friend… proving that, sometimes, the things we truly need are the last things we would ever expect.
