"This is a novel of great empathy, about connections and coming-of-age, built families and self-acceptance. It contains heartbreak and redemption, and a plucky, irresistible protagonist...[A] propulsive, empathetic novel." Shelf Awareness
Little River, New York, 1994: April Sawicki is living in a motorless motorhome that her father won in a poker game. Failing out of school, picking up shifts at a local diner, she's left fending for herself in a town where she's never quite felt at home. When she "borrows" her neighbor's car to perform at an open mic night, she realizes her life could be much bigger than where she came from. After a fight with her dad, April packs her stuff and leaves for good, setting off on a journey to find a life that's all hers.

Driving without a chosen destination, she stops to rest in Ithaca. Her only plan is to survive, but as she looks for work, she finds a kindred sense of belonging at Cafe Decadence, the local coffee shop. Still, somehow, it doesn't make sense to her that life could be this easy. The more she falls in love with her friends in Ithaca, the more she can't shake the feeling that she'll hurt them the way she's been hurt. As April moves through the world, meeting people who feel like home, she chronicles her life in the songs she writes and discovers that where she came from doesn't dictate who she has to be.

This lyrical, luminous tale "is both a profound love letter to creative resilience and a reminder that sometimes even tragedy can be a kind of blessing" (Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author).

Julia Whelan is a terrific narrator, as always. The writing and the story were fine - enjoyed listening, it just wasn't one of my favorite stories. ( )

Sixteen-year-old April Sawicki lives in a parked motorhome, where her divorcee father (her mother hasn’t been in the picture for years) mostly leaves her to fend for herself while he hangs out with his girlfriend and “the boy”. She makes music and as much of a life as she can, but when her father destroys her guitar, she has enough and runs away to Ithaca. As April begins to settle, someone threatens her and she goes on the road. Three years later, she’s still traveling, scrounging for gigs and scraping by.

The book felt as directionless as April. I wondered what the point of the story was for most of the book, and only really kept with it because the book was a Christmas gift and I wanted to be able to tell the gifter that I read it. I didn’t hate it. April was a character I wanted to root for as much as I wanted to shake her. But it’s a lot of meandering before April can finally make her home, and I had trouble believing in the entire set up of the plot. ( )

this is such a feel good read, and tugged on my heartstrings quite a bit. That coming of Age tropes made me feel so invested in the characters. Wish I picked this up sooner ( )

This is so so good, bonus is Julia Whelan reads the audio book. April is a great character and so are her people. The book stays interesting and on the move just like her ( )

I knew nothing about this book prior to downloading it from the library but OMG… it was incredible. A beautiful coming of age story, highlighting love and chosen family. ( )
