Finished Looking For Group by Rory Harrison. I received a copy for review.
Dylan is a medical miracle. He had cancer and was given months to live. Instead, his cancer went into spontaneous remission. He doesn’t fully trust it, though, and one day he goes on a road trip to visit his best friend Arden. (They know each other from the internet.) She has her own issues and the two take off in search of a mythical pirate ship in the desert. (Long story.)
It’s so much better than I’m making it sound; it’s not unlike The Princess Bride–there’s friendship and true love and a quest (but no fencing, torture or ROUSes).
It’s a delightful story that will break your heart a few different times. (It’s worth it.)
