Where do you go when you can't run away from yourself? Maisie and Phoebe Shepherd are as different as twins can be. Their blue eyes and red hair are the only thing that is similar about them. Maisie lives for the thrill of a hundred-meter dash, while Phoebe longs to spend her days and nights studying about narwhals in the Arctic Sea. Phoebe has a not-so-secret crush on Michael Bishop, ‘the greatest guy at Sherman Middle’, but he seems to be smitten with her sister instead. Things take a drastic turn when a sudden illness shakes the very core of the twins’ bond. As one sister struggles to get back on her feet, the other must find a way to hold her family together. The siblings come to learn that a high cost comes with living life to the fullest. As time runs out, and decisions have to be made, the two need to find the balance between security and freedom. Who wants to go on a road trip? Note: Maisie's Road Trip is a full-length, standalone young adult novel. No cliffhangers.
