Hours after her brother’s military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen Rusty in ages, but it’s obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever—not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor’s better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn’s memory—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?
Jessi Kirby is the author of Moonglass, published in May 2011 by Simon and Schuster. She is also a former English teacher and librarian, wife, mom, beach lover, runner, and lover of Contemporary YA, strong coffee, and dark chocolate. In that order.

1. If you could have one wish that would allow you to do something you've always wanted to do (and Ryan Gosling isn't an appropriate answer), what would it be?
Ha! Well since you ruled Ryan Gosling out... I would wish to be able to travel anywhere I wanted to just by thinking about a place.
For starters, it'd save a lot on airfare! But more seriously, I haven't done much traveling yet, and it's a thing I've always wanted to do. I also think it'd come in quite handy when I need to get the setting of a story right. I could just go there and voila! Best research tool ever.
