The book was good, making me laugh at a few parts! I enjoyed it and finished it quickly, really liking the companionship of the 4 characters and how they stuck together. Learned some interesting facts about the desert and Nevada. SPOILER ALERT: I do wish that Clayton Presley and the robbers made another appearance at the end of the book or what the dad did when he found out. All in all, read it!

A tale of two brothers filled with peril. The stakes are high and I was riveted as these two boys struggle to reach their goal. When you have a vehicle, 96 miles is easy. Try covering that distance on foot in the heat, on a deserted highway, with water from a toilet that has to be boiled. There is much more to their story, but I will leave you to discover that on your own. Ever trained for a marathon? You can start to imagine the mental anguish that these boys endure. As a runner, I could especially identify with John as he is attempting to cover miles quickly at one point. The struggle is real! Warning: this is best for older middle grade readers as the plot includes physical violence, guns, and knives.
