Dessa Rhodes is a modern day nomad. Her family travels in an RV, their lives defined by state lines, exit signs, and the small communal caravan they call home. Among them is Cyrus, her best friend and long-time crush, whom she knows she can never be with. When your families are perpetually linked, it’s too dangerous to take a risk on romance.

Instead, Dessa looks to the future. She wants to be a real artist and going to art school is her ticket to success and a new life. There’s just one problem: she hasn’t been accepted…anywhere. Suddenly her future is wide open, and it looks like she’s going to be stuck traveling forever.

Then an unexpected opportunity presents itself: an internship working with a local artist in Santa Fe. Dessa struggles to prove to her boss—and herself—that she belongs there, but just as she finally hits her stride, her family suffers an unexpected blow.

Faced with losing everything that she has worked for, Dessa has a difficult decision to make. Will she say goodbye to her nomadic lifestyle and the boy she loves? Or will she choose to never stop moving?

About Lauren Spieller

Lauren Spieller is a literary agent who lives in New York with her husband. When she isn’t writing, she can be found drinking lattes, pining for every dog she sees, or visiting her native California. YOUR DESTINATION IS ON THE LEFT is her debut novel. Follow her on Twitter @laurenspieller.

So, since Dessa gets to spend some time seeing the country, I figured we could use books to take us on a little US road trip! Ignore the fact that you can’t *technically* drive to Hawaii. Anyway, these books can show glimpses of the country, just like we get to see in Your Destination is on the Left! If you like a book with road trips, a great family story, self discovery, and yes, a little romance, make sure to check out YDIotL!

  1. I need to save this post in my reading list, because it will help me with my Read Across America challenge. I enjoyed this book. I was intrigued by the nomadic lifestyle and the art stuff. A solid debut.

  2. I just got approved for this on EW and I’m SO EXCITED!!! Hawaii ahhh!! (Also I just read another book with Hawaii happening and honestly, livin’ the dream here. I want to go so bad.) Although I love how you can roadtrip in the US and actually get to other states. ? In Australia it’s more like “hey we drove two days AND WE’RE STILL IN THE SAME STATE.”??

    Anyway, excited to read this one!

  3. I think this sounds like an interesting book. It’s competing with a ton of other books that are coming out this year, so I don’t know when I might be able to get around to it. I usually don’t know what I’m going to read next though.

  4. WOW that map. seems like we can really travel while we read ? I love it so, so much. I have read a bunch of books featured here, and I especially want to read Liars, Inc. and Your Destination is on the left as well, both sound really like my kind of books somehow 😀
