Last True Love Story, by Brendan Kiely
Mild mannered Hendrix is done with following the rules. He's tired of being alone, writing poetry no one understands, and he's tired of not getting any straight answers about his dead dad from anyone. But mostly he's angry that the man who raised him, his Gpa, is losing his memory due to Alzheimer's and therefore losing his memories of his life with Gma. So when the troubled girl of Hendrix’s dreams, Corrina, needs a quick escape from her rock-star lifestyle he takes the biggest chance of his life. With a little help from Corrina, Hendrix breaks Gpa out of “old folks prison” in California and steals his mom’s car to go on an epic road trip across the country to get Gpa back to his home town and back to his memories of Gma, while he still has them. “Everyone respects the "road trip" except the police, his mother, and Corrina’s parents, apparently.
Last True Love Story is a sweet and engaging look at love in all its forms and at its many stages in life. I enjoyed that the budding romance between Hendrix and Corrina didn’t take the focus off the story entirely but added to the overall tone. Love is the deep and driving force for much of the action but also the cause for many of the secrets. Hendrix is trying to write the family history to hold on to the beauty and importance of the tender moments between loved ones that can only live in memory while realizing you have to fully live your life to have memories worth keeping..
