Now a movie on HBO Max! 'A remarkable debut about the long and winding road of adolescence. Hilarious journeys and heartbreaking choices.' STEPHEN CHBOSKY Veronica never thought she'd want to fail a test - until she finds herself staring at a plastic stick with two solid pink lines. She's pregnant. With her college future fading before her eyes, Ronnie has to make a tough choice - an abortion. But the closest clinic is over nine hundred miles away. Faced with a treacherous boyfriend and no car, Ronnie turns to the one person who won't judge her: her ex-best friend Bailey. What could go wrong? Not much, apart from stolen cars, crazed ex-boyfriends, aliens, and the pain and heartbreak of a broken relationship ... In this warm and darkly funny road trip story, Veronica and Bailey drive a thousand miles to an out-of-state abortion clinic - rediscovering their friendship in the process. A sharply-observed, bittersweet road-trip story for our times; perfect for fans of Booksmart and Juno. Female friendship is at the heart of the story: Veronica teams up with her ex-best pal and social misfit, Bailey. A YA Thelma-and-Louise story with a strong social and reproductive justice theme.
