Goodreads asked Beth Harbison:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Beth Harbison For the book that's coming out 8/5/14, DRIVING WITH THE TOP DOWN, the idea began with my love of road trips. So it was "what if I could take a road trip south and find cool antiques and thrift store things along the way?" then "what if I ended up having to take a weird assortment of people along when I'd planned to have a monk-like trip of self-discovery?" and "what if just about everything went wrong?"
