by Jennifer Skura Boutell

Sam is not having a good day. She’s minutes from hosting a baby shower she’s struggled to arrange for her best friend, Nancy, when she receives an unexpected phone call that catapults her on a surreal journey across the country to help her dying mother. While Sam travels forward, she is forced to look back, and through the absurd situations she encounters along the way, Sam discovers that self-acceptance and friendship are her most powerful tools to free her from her traumatic past.
