ABOUT THIS BOOK

Sixteen-year-old Billy Allbright is about to bust out of his sheltered cocoon and go on a gonzo road trip. He just doesn't know it yet. His ticket to freedom? A mysterious Bible containing two resurrection stories. The second is about a man Billy's never met, and who is supposedly dead: his father.
But the road to a risen-from-the-grave dad, and the unusual inheritance he promises, is far from straight. Billy zigzags across the American West in a geocaching treasure hunt. When his journey includes a runaway baseball star, nudists who perform sun dances, a girl with neon green body parts, and con artists who blackmail him into their "anti-action movie," Billy soon realizes that the path to self-discovery is mega off-road.


From the Hardcover edition.

QUOTES

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 14, 2011:
"Meehl doesn't pull any punches as his characters undergo their own journeys to freedom in this powerful, intelligent tale."


From the Hardcover edition.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

BRIAN MEEHL and Billy Allbright have something in common. They've both ridden zigzag trails. Meehl's first zig was puppeteering on Sesame Street. Then he zagged to writing for kids' television and picked up three Emmys along the way. He is also the author of the hilarious and inventive Out of Patience and Suck It Up. Living 250 yards from where Mark Twain died 100 years ago, Meehl has a chronic fear of the Master appearing and intoning, "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, as well as your authorial skills. I recommend a swift retreat to puppeteering."


From the Hardcover edition.
