Publisher's Summary

For fans of literary classics such as The Catcher in the Rye and The Perks of Being a Wallflower comes a stirring new thought-provoking novel from debut author Sam Miller about a loss shrouded in mystery with twists and turns down every railway.

Arthur Louis Pullman III is on the verge of a breakdown.

He’s been stripped of his college scholarship, is losing his grip on reality, and has been sent away to live with his aunt and uncle. It’s there that Arthur discovers a journal written by his grandfather, the first Arthur Louis Pullman, an iconic Salinger-esque author who went missing the last week of his life and died hundreds of miles away from their family home.

What happened in that week - and how much his actions were influenced by his Alzheimer’s - remains a mystery. But now Arthur has his grandfather’s journal - and a final sentence containing a train route and a destination.

So Arthur embarks on a cross-country train ride to re-live his grandfather’s last week, guided only by the clues left behind in the dementia-fueled journal. As Arthur gets closer to uncovering a sad and terrible truth, his journey is complicated by a shaky alliance with a girl who has secrets of her own and by escalating run-ins with a dangerous Pullman fan base.

Arthur’s not the only one chasing a legacy - and some feel there is no cost too high for the truth. 

"A Lite Too Bright Theme" written and performed by Samuel Miller and Dylan Bauld.
