About this item

A country music hopeful puts her Nashville dreams on hold when she moves into an RV to travel across the country with her family in this charming new novel from the author of Breaking the Ice.

When twelve-year-old Maya's parents sell their house and move the family into the world's ugliest RV to travel the country, Maya's only goal is to get back home - and fast. No way is she going to miss the chance to audition for Dueling Duets, the singing competition show that's going to surely propel her - and her cowboy-hatted crush - to country stardom.

Operation Maya Goes Home, or OMGH, turns out to be more complicated than she had expected, so Maya sets out on a secret one-day, one-hundred-mile bike ride through Yellowstone National Park with her know-it-all little sister, a cute nature boy, and blue-haired, earbud-addicted Shiver (a.k.a. the most annoying girl ever) . Somewhere between the worst muscle ache she's ever experienced and losing half of their group to a flat tire, Maya starts wondering if maybe, just maybe, it's possible to find home in the last place you expected.
