This book was a pure delight to read. Poor Claire is living the #vanlife with her storytelling dad and semi-irritating younger brother, and learns that a true home is more than just a house.

I loved the stories Claire’s dad weaved. And I loved how Claire discovers her own gift for storytelling and that the best stories always have a hint of truth to them. I cried along with Claire, her brother, Patrick, and their goofy, lovable dad as their journey takes them right where they need to be.

Claire leaves everything she knows and lives/travels in a van with her dad and brother. Her dad is a great storyteller but avoids talking about reality. Their adventure reminds me of Coyote Summer and A Girl Called Bicycle. LOL Funny as they banter back and forth. #bookexcursion @HiDLang
