Julia Whelan is a terrific narrator, as always. The writing and the story were fine - enjoyed listening, it just wasn't one of my favorite stories.

Sixteen-year-old April Sawicki lives in a parked motorhome, where her divorcee father (her mother hasn’t been in the picture for years) mostly leaves her to fend for herself while he hangs out with his girlfriend and “the boy”. She makes music and as much of a life as she can, but when her father destroys her guitar, she has enough and runs away to Ithaca. As April begins to settle, someone threatens her and she goes on the road. Three years later, she’s still traveling, scrounging for gigs and scraping by.

The book felt as directionless as April. I wondered what the point of the story was for most of the book, and only really kept with it because the book was a Christmas gift and I wanted to be able to tell the gifter that I read it. I didn’t hate it. April was a character I wanted to root for as much as I wanted to shake her. But it’s a lot of meandering before April can finally make her home, and I had trouble believing in the entire set up of the plot.

this is such a feel good read, and tugged on my heartstrings quite a bit. That coming of Age tropes made me feel so invested in the characters. Wish I picked this up sooner

This is so so good, bonus is Julia Whelan reads the audio book. April is a great character and so are her people. The book stays interesting and on the move just like her
