Summary

Side A: Laney's Going Solo

Laney has just finished graduate school in California and sees her cross-country drive as the perfect chance to reflect on the past before facing her future back East. With 3,000 miles ahead of her and a box of mix tapes as her only companion, she envisions a trip spent reminiscing; whether it's her first camp kisses, high school parties and crushes, or college loves and losses, Laney's most treasured memories - good and bad - are all just a song away.

Side B: A Change of Tune

Laney's mother, in town for graduation, thinks a mother-daughter road trip sounds like much more fun than going it alone - and Laney can hardly refuse. Soon, she's giving her mother a crash course not only in pop music of the '70s and '80s but also in her own life... for somehow Mom doesn't know her daughter as well as she'd like to. Together, as America whizzes by, Laney and her mother are turning up the volume of their relationship... and learning that there's nothing more revealing than the soundtrack of our lives.

A nice story

This is a nice story, quite simple, although the author has tried to weave some meaning throughout and has succeeded somewhat. As always Julia Whelan gives an excellent performance (and is the reason I bought this book), and her reading and characterisations are the highlight.
