A story full of heart, joy, friendship, and sadness. It's going to be a while before I recover from this book.

Coyote, and her Dad, Rodeo, live and wander on an old school bus. They follow their own rules, and their own whims, occasionally taking on a passenger. But their lives are not as light-hearted as they may appear, and their wandering also helps them avoid the loss of Coyote's mom and sisters. ( )

The more I reflect on the premise, the worse I feel about this book. First of all, it feels quite similar to Road Trip and Someday Birds in the road trip fashion where everything goes wrong. But quite frankly, the character of Rodeo is a deeply unsafe and unhealthy person and because we see the narrative through Coyote's eyes there's not a lot of recognition that much of what he does is unsafe and unhealthy until the very end. Let's list it: no stable home, no proper trailer with running plumbing--ability to stay healthy and clean, emotionally crippling her by forbidding her to grieve and emotionally manipulating any opportunity where she could express those feelings, removing her from any community she formed, creating a dynamic where Rodeo is the only person she can trust, hinted at later that he has a drinking problem, etc. That's horrific.
Also I found it really unfortunate that the woman who called the police was demonized as if she had done the wrong thing. The trafficking of kids is a real thing in the US and making out that this lady just didn't understand that Coyote and Rodeo were special and different from everyone else was really problematic. I can't imagine that 5 years had gone by and no overriding authority had taken action for Coyote, much less the grandmother not taken action. All in all, the story feels like a true fantasy, completely divorced from actual children's lives. ( )

It's been 5 years since Coyote's mother and sisters died in a car accident, and she and her father have been on the road ever since living out of a converted school bus. Everything seems to be okay until Coyote learns that a park near their old home is slated to be destroyed -- along with the memory box she buried there with her mother and sisters. Now she has to find her way back there in time, without letting on to her father this is her intent as he is determined to never look back. Thus begins a massive road trip from Florida to Washington State with many strays -- animal and human -- picked up along the way.

This book went through so many emotions as it touched upon a lot of different topics. The beginning was a tiny bit slow but then it picked up and just kept rolling. The characters were interesting, especially Coyote who is narrating the story. At first, her voice seemed a little too folksy for me, but then she grew on me real quick. The side characters are fascinating, although I almost wish we got more of their stories. With these characters, there is a lot of diversity shown; however, it's like they need to be almost immediately described as Black, Latinx, gay. (Other characters are by default white and heterosexual.)

The main premise that a school bus is a mobile home for a "hippie" father and daughter is a little far-fetched, but Coyote's problems are strangely relatable in a way. She struggles with making friends (all the more so because of their constantly on-the-go life), she is struggling to deal with her grief, she doesn't always know how to ask her father for things she really needs, etc. But the more strange and unusual aspects are also a compelling part of the story, as it won't be things kids are familiar with at all. (For instance, the "drop everything and drive" dreams in which the father and daughter will drive thousands of miles just to get a particular sandwich from a mom-and-pop place in a specific locality.)

There's lots of good messaging within these pages but not in the ‘hit you over the head’ moralizing kind of way. The language is accessible enough but also pretty and deep at times. As mentioned earlier, sometimes Coyote gets a little folksy, especially with the metaphors used. The story will keep readers hooked wondering what will happen next to Coyote and her group, especially with chapters that end in mini cliffhangers. All in all, this was a story that grips the reader and I think will stay with them for a while. ( )

This was a beautiful, touching story.
I tend to love when people just connect and that's what seemed to happen with so many characters in the story.
Coyote and her dad, Rodeo, live in a school bus. They travel the country having adventures.
Coyote's first stray she collects is a cat she names, Ivan.
More people and animals board the bus as Coyote plans a route back to their home, a place they haven't visited in 5 years, to retrieve a memory box from a park about to be demolished.
She has to trick her dad to try to make this happen. Most of the book takes place on the road on this epic journey from Florida to Washington. ( )

Coyote and her dad Rodeo roam the earth in their mobile-school-bus-home. They have been free and easy travelers for five years since an accident tragically killed Coyote's mom and her two sisters. When she hears from family back home that the park by their old home is being demolished she has to race against time on a cross-country journey to recover something extra special. ( )

Yeah. Maybe I'm a little broken. Maybe I'm a little fragile. But I think of Val, and Salvador, and Lester, and I think it's all right. Maybe we're all a little broken. Maybe we're all a little fragile. Maybe that's why we need each other so much.
I look up at the Holy Hell Bell, and it's gleaming like St. Peter's gates up there in a sun ray and I think about standing up and ringing it, but I don't, because it ain't that kind of moment It's just not. It's rich and it's full and it's a certain deep kind of happy, but it's already ringing with its own quiet music.
I stand there, looking out at the world we're driving into. None of it had to happen. Not one bit. Sunrises and sunsets and ice cream cones never had to exist, shooting stars and acoustic guitars and holding hands, good books and warm blankets and goodnight kisses--none of them ever had to be. Mama and Ava and Rose never had to live and breathe; they could've never come to be. Rodeo and me and Yager and Lester and Grandma and Salvador and Val and Ivan could've never come to be. All of it, every little bit, could've never happened, and I could've never seen it and I'd never even know I hadn't. But it did. And I did. Oh, I did. There is so much happiness in the world. There is so much sadness in the world. There is just so much in the world.
