Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.
Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.
Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.
So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and -- worst of all -- confronting some ugly secrets.
Why We’re Waiting On It
This one sounds like a great book about female friendships! Jamie is really excited to see a novel that doesn’t seem to have a romantic subplot (unless the girls are gay for each other, but she would LOVE THAT). But it is nice to have a YA book that features female friendships exclusively!
Dani is equally excited because she would also run away with Jamie if it came to that, and she’s hoping this book represents a female friendship as strong as hers and Jamie’s. <3
