Together they face redefining their relationship, as well as dramatic legal proceedings, abuse, bullying, dangerous teenage self-sabotage and southern racism. They try to make fundamental changes for better in their lives. Navigating contemporary issues, including Eve's befriending a transgender teen, causes each to ask deeper, age-old questions, those that have mystified humankind for all time.Hard-hitting, dramatic fiction that leads readers on a road they wouldn't normally walk. This is the story of one man, and one girl, thrown together-filled with the pain, the sorrow, the happiness and the joy of living-this is Enjoying the Ride.
