Actual rating: 4.99The .01 is due to the typos: the only imperfections this book has.This was one really good story. The pictures and mixes just added to the reality factor, and just how awesome is it that the author really embarked on that road trip? Wow. I'd love to do that someday.And the ending. Not as closed as I wanted it to be, but life's just one long detour that can't be mapped out, I guess.
