Part history lesson, part road trip, this notable middle grade debut by Stone stars 12 year old “Scoob” Lamar, as he heads off on a road trip with his beloved grandmother, G’ma. He mostly goes to escape a punishment from his father, but as the two make their way through the South, Scoob learns more about the grandfather whom he never met, the interracial couple’s 1963 road trip, which G’ma aims to complete, and the ways in which the world has changed and remained the same.
A heartwarming, family-centered adventure that will leave readers guessing until the end." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
