Jane Fielding, the perpetual dreamer and would-be adventurer of Horvath's My One Hundred Adventures, is back in this sequel that follows her and her family on a road trip from Saskatchewan to Nevada and back to the family's beloved beachside home in Massachusetts. When Jane's stepfather Ned receives a phone call from a dying friend in British Columbia, the family packs their bags and hits the road. Once they are in British Columbia, a mysterious duffel bag full of money—left for Ned by his brother—leads the family to the Nevada ranch of Ned's estranged mother. From there, the story centers on Jane's astute observations of family dynamics and drama, including a chapter in which she must deal with her mercurial sister's severe loneliness and boredom.
