100 Sideways Miles

Andrew Smith

Destiny takes a detour in the latest novel from the acclaimed author of Winger (2013). When Finn Easton, 16, was a child, a dead horse falling from a bridge injured him and killed his mother. After the accident, his dad featured Finn and his epilepsy in a novel that became a sci-fi classic, making his son's life a nightmare. The only people who treat him as a real person are his best friend, the zany Cade and his first love, Julia. When Julia moves away, all seems lost, but a road trip with Cade, a heroic rescue during a flash flood, mistaken identities, and a long detour, offer Finn a chance to remake himself.
