Summary
In this debut novel we follow actress Valerie Torrey - who took her son Alex and fled Los Angeles, leaving her husband after a spectacular tragedy blew their small family apart. Six years later, Val must reunite 9-year-old Alex with his estranged father, so they set out on a road trip from New York. For Alex, this world is a magical place where fiction becomes reality, but as they get closer to their destination, he begins to realize that the story his mother is telling him about their journey might have a very different ending than he imagined
