Sintesi dell'editore

From New York Times best-selling author Luanne Rice, a sweeping story of a girl and boy, both troubled in different ways, who take off on a whirlwind road trip up the East Coast.

Here are three things to know about Maia:

1. Ever since her mother left, Maia's struggled with depression - which once got so bad, she had to go to an institution for a while. She doesn't want to go back.

2. Maia's sure that if she finds her mother, if the two of them can talk about whale songs and constellations, then everything will be okay again.

3. She's in love with Billy, the handsome, brooding boy who lives in the group home in town. He doesn't seem to know that Maia exists...until now.

When Maia sets off on a road trip in search of her mom, Billy unexpectedly comes along. They drive up the East Coast, stopping along the way for lobster rolls and lighthouses. Maia learns that Billy has dark secrets of his own - and wants to outrun his past, too. But what will the future hold if they reach their destination?

From internationally best-selling author Luanne Rice, this is a sweeping, stunning story about the surprising directions our hearts can take.

The Beautiful Lost Are Beautifully Found

This book IS... INCREDIBLE. Deep down I have been just craving a book with a positive, but realistic view on mental health-this is IT! This book’s main characters, Maia and Billy, feature two main characters who are badly damaged from their parents’ mistakes, but who desperately want to overcome said damage. This fact intertwines their lives and takes them on an amazing adventure. I love the way this book portrays the truth that you don’t have to be 27 to know what you want out of life. As far as technicalities go, the voice actress was masterful in showing Maia’s emotions; the writing was descriptive and really took you into the story. I really felt like I was Maia on that road trip with Billy! I *can’t* wait to reread this book in a year when my mind won’t be as fresh with it and I can enjoy it all over again!!

this book was amazing!

this book is great for readers both young too old. Luanne rice has really outdone herself in this one. I have been reading Luanne Rice books forever and this is different than anything she has ever written but I have to say it's the best I have ever read. I could see this as a major motion picture. I don't usually take the time to stop and review books with words but I had to do it on this one. great job Luanne!!
