ANNIE ENGLAND NOBLIN is the author of Sit! Stay! Speak!, Pupcakes and the St. Francis Society for Wayward Pets. With MAPS FOR THE GETAWAY (on sale June 15, 2021; ISBN: 9780062910738; $16.99) Noblin delivers another relatable, heartfelt tale of friendship, reminiscences, and new adventures, with a so-ugly-it’s-cute stray dog rounding out the cast of memorable characters.
When they posed for a photo at their high school graduation, they vowed they’d be friends forever, but teenage promises are so easily broken, and now, 30 years later, they’re practically strangers.
• In MAPS FOR THE GETAWAY, there’s Cici—stuck in a rut, married to a cheating husband.
• Genie—caring for her ailing father but never getting any thanks.
• Kate—everyone knows people who look perfect on Instagram are not… • And Laurie—the most successful of them all—now tragically gone.
To celebrate Laurie’s life, the three former friends rent a 1962 red Lincoln Continental convertible and take the road trip of their lives—encountering male strippers, crazy motel rooms, a boy band that had seen better days, adopting a loveable stray dog…and discovering that it’s never too late to live the wild life—because, sometimes, to find yourself you have to get away.
In MAPS FOR THE GETAWAY three high school friends set out to heal their fractured hearts while at various crossroads in their lives, embarking on an unforgettable road trip to help them change perspective and rediscover what made them “best friends forever.”
