I loved everything about this book It checked all my boxes A scavenger hunt set by a mom before she died sends two sisters one just out of prison for setting fire to a library who is also a hawk trainer the other a former NASCAR racer on a search given only coordinates Dead mom was a renowned paleontologist All three women have different enough careers and backgrounds to make just this little part of the book interesting They drive from Illinois to Utah to scatter their moms nonexistent ashes and are taken to some of my favorite places including Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico The chapters are interspersed with passages from texts relating to their location and not only is the full bibliographic citation given but the library call number is given as a librarian I loved this The sisters are for the most part unsure of the reasons for the scavenger hunt and even after several finds and stops they still are unsure of why their mom has sent them on this scavenger hunt What they find still doesn t make much sense We the reader is along for the long car ride across the county They find campgrounds instead of always staying in hotels and as a camper I liked this part too I wish they would have explored the campgrounds a bit though Nature seemed to be missing from their experience I was disappointed in their food choice in Albuuerue they went to a Vietnamese restaurant What No green chile The author could have done some research and at least sent them to The Frontier Restaurant on Central The food choices all along the way were disappointing They ate at Taco Bell and Denny s Ugh I did enjoy that they were getting road tripper food at gas stations thoughThis is really an exploration into who these main characters are were and will become Fantastic
