Publisher's Summary

Out of desperation to escape the confines of her small Northern California town, in 1979, Genger breaks every rule of her social class, gender, and upbringing to become a long-haul truck driver.

Shift Happens is a 21st-century incarnation of the classic voyage to find one’s self and one’s homeland. By facing her mental health and addiction demons, at the age of 28, she sees her role as a young woman flip-flop from cheerleader, girlfriend, young wife, sex-symbol to a strong, self-determined individual who knows what she wants and how to succeed. Along the way, Margot discovers the many facets of America - its beauty and its meanness - and eventually realizes what she values in "home".

Ms. Genger’s gift of description paints the majesty of the beaches, mountains, meadows, and skyscapes of the countryside, and captures the colors and grit of our cities, truck stops, and underground lives of long-haul truck drivers. Shift Happens will make you laugh, cringe, and celebrate as you meet Margot’s driving partners - Southerners, Yankees, East Coast, West Coast, and Middle Americans of all stripes and colors - as she delivers everything from Hustler magazines to Washington State apples.
