Lance Hendricks is a perfect kid—plays trumpet, 4.0 GPA, has earnest heart palpitations for a girl, knows his way around cars. When his trusty steed—er, car—breaks down in the middle of the Washington wilderness, things—wait for it—go awry. It’s like David Lynch’s Lost Highway meets The Wizard of Oz, but without all the monkeys.
[And we’ll gloss over the characterization of the Washington woods as spooky wilderness terrain, because, you know, some of us have those woods in our back yards, and they’re not that spooky.]
Anyway, we like J. C. We met him at Children’s Institute earlier this year, and he’s got a wide-eyed energetic style that is right there on the page. We’re delighted that his book is finally out and that you can all enjoy it too.
