Motorcycles, Sushi and One Strange Book

motorcycles sushiI love the opening line in Motorcycles, Sushi and One Strange Book (Zondervan, 2010) by Nancy Rue: “I guess my life was crazy even before the day it really lost its mind.” The book lived up to the opening, too.
15-year-old Jessie Hatcher’s life is spent dealing with her ADHD and her mother’s In Bed mode, which is better than her rare Out of Bed mode. Then the father she thought was dead shows up. She can’t deny he’s her father as she’d look just like him if she was a boy. Then mom goes into crisis and she has to go to Florida to live with this man she’s just met. Along the way she gets involved, as the title says, with motorcycles, sushi, and one strange book, along with a cute guy who isn’t turned off by her ADHD.
Nancy has written books for mini-women and adult women and is now writing for teens. See her blog for teens here.
