Two best friends go on a cross-country bike trek, and only one returns. In this exciting debut, Bradbury delivers a tour de force about cycling, friendship, and the depths of loyalty.
From the Publisher:
Imagine you and your best friend head off on a cross-country bike trek.

Imagine that you get into a fight -- the cheap s.o.b. won't kick in any cash.

Imagine you stop riding together.

Imagine you reach Seattle then come home alone, still p.o-ed.

Imagine the FBI is now at your college dorm.

Imagine finding out that your former best friend never made it home.

And imagine that he had actually been carrying over $20,000 in cash with him.

Imagine your world shifting....

A tour-de-force about biking, friendship, and the depths of loyalty by a debut novelist who has in fact biked cross country.

Annotation:
A cross country bike trip turns into a mystery when Chris's best friend, Win, decides to go his own way. The summer after high school graduation, the boys leave West Virginia planning on reaching Seattle, but Win's unexpected disappearance surprises and hurts Chris. Slowly, he begins to discover just how bad things were at home for Win, and when he finds himself the main suspect in the disappearance, Chris must find a way out of the mess. Reality and memory clash in this taut, gripping young adult novel that will pique the interest of mystery readers and problem-novel fans alike.

"Readers will come for the thrill of the open road and stay for an authentic picture of a friendship between two young men about to tackle adulthood in very different ways." 6/1/2008
