Review:

Jason and Kevin are on a road trip to visit Kevin’s sister and it leads to a bit of a storytelling session as they recount events from their past.  Some are funny, some are serious, and some involve traumatic and defining events. The stories told are compelling and are how the reader gets to know the characters over the course of the book.

Generally, I enjoyed this.  The concept was interesting and the parallels of the journey in the car and the journeys of their lives seemed to work well for me.  That said, it would have been nice to get more depth on the characters and who they are now–how did these events shape them?  There were also times when it didn’t seem like they threaded together as well as they could have.  But it was still enjoyable and I’d recommend it as a quick and interesting read.
