Publisher's Summary

Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It's how he makes sense of the world and how he tries to convince himself that he's a real boy and not just a character in his father's best-selling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly insane but definitely excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he's ever loved. Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken.

Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned - and learn how to write their own destiny.

"Leavened with humor and high-school high jinks, this unpredictable story of love and friendship is close to perfect." ( Booklist)

Warning foul language.

Just a warning, this is listed as a middle grade / young teen book for 11-13 but in the first couple minutes there was the S word and F word. Now some people might not care about this, but I just thought this should be disclosed since it is listed as an ages 11-13 book.
