Publisher's Summary

Jeremy Walsh's parents assume he's been abducted by the elderly man he met on a cross-country flight, but it's the other way around. Two unlikely companions meet in midair: thirteen-year-old Jeremy, sent against his will by his career-absorbed father to spend the summer with his bipolar mother, and Harry, one-legged and afflicted with mid-stage Alzheimer's, who escapes the confinement of home for what may be his last adventure. Their journey begins, trailed by Harry's wife and Jeremy's parents, who threaten to cut it short. It's a race against time and circumstance.

Poor narration

The kindle version is warm hearted and enjoyable. The Audible narrator speaks too rapidly and has a flat voice without expression or intonation. I read the book rather than listening.
