Sweet Baby Jesus, this book was sad. I have a apprehension about reading things that will make my eyes water uncontrollably, but as soon as I started the book, I couldn't put it down. Sayre Bellavia, a 17 year old girl, gets the call that her mother is in the hospital. It wouldn't be so bad if she didn't have to HITCHHIKE to the hospital (Sayre and her mother live with unsavory characters.) It also wouldn't be bad if her mother was the epitome of Worst Mother of the Year. While hitchhiking to the hospital,she meets a boy while trying to take care of him after an accident and she tells him her story...and the waterworks ensue. Holy shit snacks. That's all I have to say. This story is memorable, and we find out WHY her mother is the way she is. I loved this story. Read it. I didn't want to spoil the book at all...and gush all the love for it.
