Summary
  • "Hendrix and Corrina bust Hendrix's grandfather out of assisted living, and leave LA for New York in pursuit of freedom, truth, and love"-- Provided by publisher
  • Corrina's adoptive parents are suffocating, trying to mold her into someone acceptable, like them. Hendrix, is kind of a poet, but also kind of lost. Gpa is his only real family, but he's fading fast from Alzheimer's. Hendrix has promised Gpa that he'll get him back east to the hill where he first kissed his wife, before his illness wipes away all memory of her. So the two teenagers steal a car, spring Gpa from his assisted living facility, stuff Old Humper the dog into the back seat, and take off on a cross-country odyssey from LA to NY
