Eighteen-year-old Angeli doesn't "fit in." She's never been on a single date, and she lives vicariously through an online world of storytelling. With the pressures of choosing a practical future path bearing down, she needs a drastic change. Too old to run away from home, she opts instead to embark on a solo 2-month road trip. But her freedom is tempered by loneliness - and anxiety tests her resolve as she comes face-to-face with her quirky internet friends.
Aside from contracting mono and repeatedly getting herself lost, Angeli's adventure is mired by more unforeseen glitches - like being detained by Canadian authorities, and a near-death experience at the hands of an overzealous amateur wrestler. Her odyssey is complicated further when she unwittingly earns the affections of two young men. One a privileged martial artist; the other a talented techie with a colorful past.
Bewildered by the emotions they stir, Angeli spurns the idea of a doomed long-distance relationship. But she is unprepared for the determination of her hopeful suitors. In the wake of her refusal, one man will betray her, and the other will prove himself worthy of a place in her future.
Angeli sets off in search of a better understanding of herself, the world, and her place in it. What she finds is an impractical love, with the potential to restore her faith in happy endings.
A true story with an unapologetically honest outlook on life, love, faith, and adventure - Once Upon A Road Trip is a coming-of-age memoir.
*Recommended for ages 14 and up
*An unusual true account, written largely in 3rd person.

In this touching biography, a father tells his daughter's story with candor. Anna Vu was born in 1966, in the midst of the Vietnam War. She dreams of becoming a doctor, but when her family moves from Vietnam to America in 1975, she fears that the cultural and language barriers of her new home will prevent her from reaching her goals. But Anna has a change of heart, and soon her everyday life becomes a journey toward greatness as she searches for her purpose, struggles with understanding the afterlife, and longs for true love and the ability to welcome it. When Anna accepts a position at a veterans' hospital after graduating from medical school, she is forced to explore the disparity in perception among Americans and Vietnamese in regards to the Vietnam War while simultaneously settling into her role as a doctor. This initial resistance serves to cultivate her relationship with her culture and her confidence in her profession. Anna displays an incredible tenacity in her search for truth and happiness; her story will be an inspiration to all. [close]
