9780061870927: As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth

Wait

The train was moving. Ry could hardly tell at first, but now he knew. It was gaining speed, and he wasn't fast enough to catch it. He had only gotten off for a minute, just to make a phone call—and now it was gone. He was in the middle of nowhere, alone.

Maybe it was the middle of nowhere, but to Ry, it felt like the beginning of something. Something that would take him in cars, planes, boats . . . over an ocean and back. Something like an adventure.

Review:

ALA Booklist Editors’ Choice “Relentlessly entertaining…an absolute delight.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Wherever Perkins’s warm, funny, wise narrative goes is where a reader wants to be.” (Horn Book (starred review))

“A long, immensely enjoyable, curiously comforting ramble through an absurd-but-benign world.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“[Perkins’s] observations and turns of phrase are as unexpected and delightful as the travels she weaves together.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A rich, eventful, and extremely entertaining summer road trip.” (New York Times Book Review)
