100 Sideways Miles Blog Tour

Author: Andrew Smith 

Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Published: September 2, 2014


Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly-insane-but-definitely-excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he’s ever loved. Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken. Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned—and learn how to write their own destiny.

  1. Winger. Ryan Dean just spoke to my heart. Like, not only was it funny and charming, but I loved that you could really see him learning not to objectify girls, even while he maintained normal, horny boy thoughts. It was real, heart breaking, and just totally won my heart.

  2. I loved Winger too, but it's the only one of his I've read so far. I loved looking at things through Ryan Dean's point of view. He's such a unique 14 year old in many ways.
