You won't believe this.

I'm trapped on a tour bus with my relatives.

And other crazy people.

And two overly chipper tour guides.

It's some crazy plan to get us to bond while seeing the USA.

Wish u were here instead.


Ariel Flack never thought she'd be stuck on a bus writing postcards to Dylan, her friend-finally-turned-boyfriend. But as the Badlands roll by at five miles an hour, Ariel begins to learn that sometimes, you just have to go where the road takes you—even if the tour bus won't.

Praise For Wish You Were Here

“If I got stuck on a bus trip like Ariel does in WISH YOU WERE HERE, I’d want this book to make me forget my misery. It’s both hilarious and heartbreaking, and Catherine Clark’s characters make for great company!”
-Sarah Mlynowski, author of BRAS & BROOMSTICKS
