"With memorable characters and voices, realistic emotions, and an extra helping of humor, this title rocks... A masterful look at loss and mourning wrapped up in a hilariously painful family vacation."

--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Coursing underneath this comically disastrous road trip romp is a painfully real and poignant reflection on how families find the strength to cope with loss. Funny and fast-paced (and occasionally happy), Theo's journey is one many young readers will relate to and enjoy."
