Description

The book is long, but then so is Japan - almost 3,000 km. He starts on a semi-tropical archipelago and ends up a couple of months later in a blizzard. Ferguson is apparently threatening to write his next book about the UK. Given his natural asperity, and the sideswipes he makes here about the British capacity for boredom and incapacity for eroticism, it's unlikely to be a genial, patronising saunter à la Bill Bryson. Unlike the Japanese, we don't have soft drinks called Sweat, or chocolate called Colon.

Truth and Skye are just like all their high-school friends. They love to drive cars, they love to party, and they booze it up whenever they can. And when the two girls find summer jobs at the local pizza shop, they see no reason to change their habits. They befriend Vale, a co-worker who is grateful for their attention. But the two really only have eyes for Vale's car, which she will get as soon as she passes her driving exam. Cars mean freedom - freedom to go where they want and do what they please. Truth doesn't know why, but she can't seem to get what she really wants

Just enough speed to feel the wind in her hair, just enough booze to feel dangerous. She and her friend, Skye, like the way alcohol blurs a long history of hurt and betrayals. This summer, Truth and Skye have it all: a job, a new friend with a car, and Ryan, a guy Truth is dying to go out with. One rainy night on a secondary highway, Truth’s drinking spirals out of control. She risks everything, and loses.

Blue Highways is an autobiographical travel book, published in 1982, by William Least Heat-Moon, born William Trogdon. He had coined the term to refer to small, forgotten, out-of-the-way roads connecting rural America (which were drawn in blue on the old style Rand McNally road atlas).

A thought-provoking novel from a major voice in young adult fiction

Truth and Skye are just like all their high-school friends. They love to drive cars, they love to party, and they booze it up whenever they can.

And when the two girls find summer jobs at the local pizza shop, they see no reason to change their habits. They befriend Vale, a co-worker who is grateful for their attention. But the two really only have eyes for Vale's car, which she will get as soon as she passes her driving exam. Cars mean freedom - freedom to go where they want and do what they please.

Truth doesn't know why, but she can't seem to get what she really wants. And she wants Ryan, the seriously handsome guy who works at the pizza oven. Truth's reckless behavior does catch his attention, but not in a good way. And as the summer progresses, Truth watches herself gradually lose control in a series of self-destructive acts. One day she'll be able to stop but will that day come too late?

A gripping story - by the author of the critically acclaimed Edge, Blue Highway explores teen alcoholism in a way that is neither didactic nor judgmental.

Once again Diane Tullson demonstrates a keen awareness of what drives ordinary teenagers in trouble - their loyalties, their petty jealousies and that aching sense of isolation that makes them withdraw from the world.
