Ten extraordinary authors contribute original stories about journeys of discovery, taking readers on a trip they-ll never forget - and to destinations
they never expected.
Darius climbs on a bus to a part of town he-s never seen. Mick goes for a
short walk on a dark golf course with a sister he barely knows. Jared rides
his bike day after day to the same destination, ultimately reaching a very
different one. Whether they-re leaving the country or just walking around
the block, whether traveling to Europe, Cape Cod, summer camp, the racetrack, or the local diner, the characters in these stories experience things along the way that change the way they look at the world, and at themselves. As distinct as they are compelling, these ten tales of intriguing teenage journeys are spun by ten outstanding authors - including Newbery Award winner Richard Peck, National Book Award winner Kimberly Willis Holt, and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner Graham Salisbury.
