Title: The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise

I cried at the end. This book is beautifully written, really funny in places and a wonderful story of how family is who you invite on your “bus.” Coyote and her dad Rodeo have been riding around the country in a yellow school bus called YAGER, for 5 years. And Coyote has followed all the rules about not talking about their past or bringing up the names of family they’ve lost or even speaking their own (real) names. But then she gets a call from her grandmother that changes everything. A race against time, an exploration of grief, a celebration of how hard and how joyful life can be, this is one of the best of the year. And don’t take my word for it — Mr. Brian thinks so too!
