The road trip from Minnesota to Pennsylvania and back is meant to be the final adventure before four
friends go their separate ways in the fall.
Except nothing goes as intended, beginning with the unexpected addition of Catherine Tate, Jessie Keller’s new girlfriend. Sam Kent denies his attraction to her while simultaneously deflecting unusual interest from his pal Hannah Lopez. Dickie Dean is the socially inept book lover who surprises them all.
Amidst a malfunctioning vehicle, being caught in the middle of a robbery, beer drinking, mosquito attacks, and other teenage drama, the five experience courage, broken hearts, fear, and laughter. Most importantly, they make memories.

Another winning story from Lindy Zart. I will say that I am not always an enthusiast about short stories just because the ones I have read felt like more should have been said. However, as those who are familiar with Lindy Zart’s writing, this short story left nothing to wonder about behind. Once again her characters are well developed, the plot of the story is clear, and the details are enough that the reader is getting a complete picture of what is happening during the story. Although I am a child of the 1960’s, this ’80’s story was great in my memory anyway. I totally enjoyed this story and highly recommend it!
