Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Austin Parker is on a journey to bring truth, beauty, and meaning to his life.
Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. The doctors say his chances of surviving are slim to none even with treatment, so he’s decided it’s time to let go.
But before he goes, Austin wants to mend the broken fences in his life. So with the help of his best friend, Kaylee, Austin visits every person in his life who touched him in a special way. He journeys to places he’s loved and those he’s never seen. And what starts as a way to say goodbye turns into a personal journey that brings love, acceptance, and meaning to Austin’s life.
I’m really curious about this one. I love books about road trips and this one sounds like it will be an emotional one. I’m really looking forward to reading it, plus Megan Bostic is a 2012 debut author.
