1 concert. 2000 miles. 3 ex-best friends.
Alice, Summer, and Tiernan used to be best friends—as well as the self-proclaimed biggest fans of the band Level3. But when the band broke up, so did their friendship.
Now, four years later, they’ve just graduated from high school. When Level3 announces a one-time reunion show in Texas, Alice impulsively buys tickets and invites her two former friends along for the trip. Reluctant at first, both girls agree to go, each with her own ulterior motive. But old resentments and other roadblocks—from unintended detours to lost concert tickets—keep getting in the girls’ way. Will their friendship get an encore, or is the show really over?
"Like most road trips, nothing goes as planned and, mixing it with three ex-best friends, it turns into an adventure worth reading."--SLJ
“Filmmaker Graham writes a road-trip tale that will entertain readers with its ridiculous circumstances and charismatic leading ladies. By turns silly, funny, a little moving, and unpredictable, this showcases Graham’s ability to capture an audience…Graham never drifts from the light, laughable wackiness of this wild trip. The trio offer a brilliant spectrum of experiences and differences, and teen readers will enjoy seeing this concoction of people and events head across the country.”
