Welcome this week to Linda Benson, author of Six Degrees of Lost. We’ll start off with a synopsis of the book.
Sometimes you have to take a journey to find out where you really belong.
Olive’s mother is headed to jail and her brother to join the Army, so thirteen-year-old Olive is uprooted from sunny California and dumped in Washington State like a stray. That’s exactly what she feels like surrounded by her aunt’s collection of homeless dogs, cats, and horses. Fourteen-year-old David’s future is already carved in stone. From a military family with two brothers serving overseas, he’s been pointed towards the Air Force Academy his entire life – but a rafting trip gone awry might ruin his chances. When a runaway dog is almost hit by a car, the search for its owner leads Olive and David, two teens from entirely different backgrounds, to an unlikely bond. Will their growing attraction to each other be enough to keep Olive from a foolhardy journey to find her mother? Will David risk his family’s plans to save her?
