The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise

Overview

Five years. That's how long twelve-year-old Coyote and her dad, River, have lived on the road in an old school bus, criss-crossing the nation. It's also how long ago Coyote lost her mom and two sisters. Coyote hasn't been home in all that time, but when she learns that the park in her old neighborhood is being demolished-the very same park where she, her mom, and her sisters buried a treasured memory box-she devises an elaborate plan to get her dad to drive 3,600 miles back to Washington state . . . without him realizing it. On the way, they'll pick up an eclectic group of folks. Lester has a lady love to meet. Salvador and his mom are looking to start over. Val needs a safe place to be herself. Coyote will learn that going home can sometimes be the hardest journey of all, but that with friends, she just might be able to turn her 'once upon a time' into a 'happily ever after.'

Reviews

Coyote's bold, engaging voice pops off the page...Gemeinhart infuses the story with moments of lyrical writing and folksy wisdom served up with a dollop of girl power. --The New York Times The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise will add to [Gemeinhart's] canon and could possibly garner a few awards. This is not just a story about Coyote's remarkable journey--this novel solidifies Gemeinhart as a remarkable children's author. --BookPage Narrator Coyote is legendary: wise, thoughtful, and perceptive...The narrative is beautifully paced and ranges easily from comic to bittersweet. --Booklist, starred review Sincere friendships, inventive obstacles, and emotional depth propel the cross-country trip as the winning protagonist stakes a claim for her future by reclaiming the past. --Publishers Weekly Every mile of the road trip inexorably brings Coyote closer to confronting her past, and its inevitable sadness, but Gemeinhart avoids any sense of mawkishness. He tempers Coyote's grief with her triumphant growth from a girl whose sole purpose is keeping her father on an even keel to one who realizes that she alone must find, and even fight for, her own happiness. --Horn Book
