“Meet Jordy. He’s on his own in New York City. Nobody to depend on; nobody depending on him. And it’s been working fine.
Until this girl comes along. She’s 18 and blond and pretty–her world should be perfect. But she’s seen things no one should ever see in their whole life–the kind of things that break a person. She doesn’t seem broken, though. She seems…innocent. Like she doesn’t know a whole lot. Only sometimes she does.
The one thing she knows for sure is that the world is an ugly place. Now her life may depend on Jordy proving her wrong. So they hit the road to discover the truth–and there’s no going back from what they find out.
This deeply felt, redemptive novel reveals both the dark corners and hidden joys of life’s journey–and the remarkable resilience of the human soul.”
Jordy’s protectiveness of Chloe is so cute. She’s such an innocent character. You can’t help but want to protect her too. It makes you wonder how she survived before he came along. Considering Jordy’s past, I thought he was surprisingly pulled together. I guess he had to considering he was roughing it in NYC.
The journey they take cross-country is amazing. They are on a journey from Connecticut to Niagra Falls to Big Sur, California. The book opens your eyes to all that is beautiful in the world, things the average person takes for granted or brushes aside as unimportant. It’s a very cute and inspiring story.
