...a clichéd understanding of elderly people: “ his old man-isms were hilarious. Who says dadgummit, oh dear, and tarnation?” That said, the pace is fast, and there’s rarely a dull moment; there’s juicy suspense in every subplot and plenty of close calls for the central duo.

Synopsis

from Award Winning YA Author, Dominic Carrillo...
Nia, a 14-year-old Bulgarian-American girl, ditches her private school and takes a train from Sofia en route to Berlin to confront her ex-boyfriend. On the way, she meets a wise, geriatric American named Kurt who has a knack for killing people unintentionally. On the lam across Eastern Europe, where will Kurt and Nia's intersecting journeys lead them? The Unusual Suspects is a heart-warming, coming-of-age adventure. "One of the best things I have read in awhile in coming-of-age literature. It isn't just great, it is sweet like honey... intriguing, entertaining, and delightful, with characters that are real and appealing."
