Leigh Fielding has spent the last five years of her life on kidney dialysis, eating a diet of bland, potassium free food and trying not to lose her sense of humour, all the while wondering if she'll make it to her 30th birthday. But now she's officially on the mend courtesy of a brand new kidney donated by a man named Larry Resnick. Leigh knows nothing about Larry other than his name and the fact that he's from Utah, but her mysterious new desires and cravings convince Leigh that she's somehow channeling his spirit. Why else would she suddenly develop an interest in kayaking, yoga and folk music? Determined to find Larry's family and put her suspicions - and his spirit - to rest, Leigh plans a roadtrip that will transport her from Wisconsin to California, passing the Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Wall Drug, the Rocky Mountains, Las Vegas - all the milestones of a classic road trip. But this is no ordinary journey. Her companion (other than Larry's kidney of course) is a 17year-old thief and hitchhiker named Denise, a fun if unpredictable travel buddy whi has a couple of secrets to hide ...Throw in a couple of ex boyfiredns, a loaded gun, a long-lost mother, an RV full of swingers and Hall and Oates's greatest hits and the story REALLY gets interesting. Jess Riley's first novel is hugely original, hysterical and touching, and introduces an exciting new talent
