...Rooster, Max’s motorcycle buddy, was a great addition to the story...The scenes Rooster shared with “Granny” were some of my favorites.

They all have a lot to learn about each other and themselves, Americana to see, and big decisions to make about their lives. This is a fun, warm, emotionally satisfying read.
