Are We There Yet?
Sometimes your destination is not where you arrive...A gorgeously thoughtful novel by the co-author with John Green of 'Will Grayson, Will Grayson' Danny isn't used to having something in common with Elijah, however slight. Their last name is the rope that ties them together. Danny and Elijah's lives could not be more different. But a journey together sweeps them up in the romance, wonder and breathtaking beauty of Italy. And falling in love opens their eyes to the distance that's grown between them. Can one girl remind them of what it means to be brothers?
