    Danny Yzemski is a husky, pop-radio-loving loner balancing a dysfunctional home life with the sudden harsh realities of freshman year at a high school marked by racial turbulence. He finds refuge through bonding sessions with his father - listening to records on their brand new hi-fi and taking in his advice on dealing with bullies and driving a car with authority. But when Danny's father passes away suddenly, he's left alone to deal with his mother, a fragile woman who's angry at the loss of her husband and the increasingly seismic cultural shifts in the world.

    Ella macht sich nichts vor. Sie ist schwer krank und ihr Mann John zu senil, um zu wissen, welchen Tag wir heute haben. Ob es eine gute Idee ist, sich mit über achtzig in ein Wohnmobil zu setzen und über die Route 66 nach Disneyland zu türmen? Natürlich nicht. Doch soll es das tatsächlich schon gewesen sein mit dem Leben? Ella ist die Wächterin der Erinnerungen und der Straßenkarten. Und sie werden losfahren - auch wenn sie nicht weiß, ob die Reise sie ans Ziel oder vielleicht doch ans Vergessen führt.
