If you gained the Meaning of Life... what then? Reaching our dreams, the pinnacle of human aspirations. Go to school, grow up, work and die. Fairytales. Grunge.
Em hopes her life will turn out like a fairytale, but worries that it will be as pointless as grunge music warns. Moving to a seaside town during the 1990's, at a new high school she meets Eido, a boy that appears to have what she seeks the most.
SUPERUNKNOWN is an existentialist absurdist novella, from an author who loves telling tales combining both philosophy and adventure. Tackling deep questions dear to readers of all ages, it is a tale of the human search for meaning, and of someone who might just know an answer...

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.
