When Axi Moore decides to take a road trip across the US, the only person she wants to go with her is her best friend Robinson - who she also happens to be secretly in love with. She's planned it all out, all he has to do is say yes. Axi has had a tough life: her little sister died young, her mother walked out and her father turned to the bottle for comfort. Her parents escaped their grief in their own way; this trip will be hers. But life doesn't always work out as you plan it, and there are some things you just can't run away from.
An extraordinary portrait of true love that will move anyone who has a first love story of their own.
