Publisher's Summary

Three runaway teenagers meet up on the road.

Fifteen-year-old Ramie Redfeather leaves Cheyenne with music in his pocket and his thumb in the air. He's looking to find his father, a man he's never met. Ramie gets a ride with Chas Sweeney, a 17-year-old driving a "borrowed" Cadillac Eldorado with Maryland tags, who just happens to be passing through Cheyenne. Chas is running away from the wreckage that is his world, 1,600 miles away. In Denver Ramie and Chas meet Mae B. LaRoux, an enchanting young singer from Baton Rouge. LaRoux, who struggles with a learning disability, is on a mission to become a professional musician. The three runaways band together and set out on a fast-paced road trip to get to the Austin Music Festival, looking for Redfeather on the way. They're on the road - but it ain't Jack Kerouac's road trip!

A 21st century coming of age on the road. Although about teenagers, the story should also appeal to older adults who harbor a rebellious teen within.

Three journeys become one!

It’s amazing how Linda Collison writes the viewpoints of teenagers! I had forgotten about my own teenage past, but this story brought it all back. And Aaron Landon was great at portraying all of people involved.
I couldn’t stop listening and wondering how this would turn out! Thank you!

3 teens, 1 epic road trip

I recently listened to Linda Collison's novel Water Ghosts and instantly fell in love with the author's writing style. I was not disappointed to then hear another of her novels, Looking for Redfeather. This is a wonderful coming-of-age tale, sure to capture your heart. When 3 rag-tag teens meet by chance and set out on the open road in a 1960 Cadillac, unexpected things happen. They each have a mission... one wants to follow her dream of making music, one wants to find his long lost father, and one wants desperately to escape what's happening to his mother back home. Wonderful story and a great narrator.

Wonderful coming of age/road trip story. I loved i

This book is fantastic! One of the best books I've read this year. The coming of age/road trip story features three truly memorable characters, Ramie Redfeather, Chas Sweeney, and Mae B. Laroux, as they meet up with one another on the road and travel together in search of the mystical musician (and possibly Ramie's father) Redfeather.

I laughed out loud at some of the antics and conversations between these three characters. The way the author gets inside the mind of teenage boys, I was surprised to realize it is a female author. Her perception and spot on teen male attitude is reminiscent of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. Very well done. I love Ramie's laid back, serious attitude, and the always entertaining, often irritating Chas is just as endearing.

The word usage and bits of knowledge spouted by all three characters is amazing. It really held me captive. At one point, Chas is described as having "a word arsenal and he's not afraid to use it." This, to me, describes this fantastic author. I can't wait to read more of her stories.

I listened to the audio version of this book and narrator, Aaron Landon, did a wonderful job. I felt like I was there, riding in the car with these characters.
