April 2013

The world of two young boys growing up in the 1950s is upended when their mother dies and their self-absorbed father loads them on a bus for a desperate trip across Nebraska in search of a new home and a new start. Only when a young, spirited woman comes into their lives do the boys begin to emerge as winners. Spanning nearly 50 years, this fast-moving story of a down-and-out American family takes the reader on an adventurous ride from post-war Nebraska to the bright lights of Hollywood to the birth of the Internet age.
