Fans of the movie O Brother Where Art Thou? will love this rollicking travel tale. Actually, even if you’ve never seen that movie, you’ll probably like this book anyway. Called “a humorous adventure across America during the Great Depression,” the book follows 19-year-old Tobias as he hitchhikes across the USA in 1936 on his way to his uncle’s farm (and a hidden treasure). Filled with colorful characters, raucous adventure, and (perhaps of course) an intriguing girl, this book will have you laughing, crying, and wanting more.
