***** ‘I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’Amazon reviewer ***** ‘Outrageously funny!’ Amazon reviewer ***** ‘Extremely touching’ Amazon reviewer ***** ‘An absolute delight’ Netgalley reviewer A ninety-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s and a heartbroken young man end up sharing a ride to Brussels that changes their lives forever. When Alex pulls up to meet “Max”, he expects everything but a ninety-year-old lady who has her heart set on getting to Brussels by carpool.
As for ‘Max’, who is actually called Maxine, she could not be more ill at ease when settling into the seat next to this young man with bloodshot eyes. God help her if he turned out to be a drug addict who hasn’t slept in days!
When it becomes clear that Maxine is suffering from Alzheimer’s and wants to take matters in her own hands while she still can, and that Alex battles severe depression, a wonderful friendship starts to form between the unlikely pair. Before long, their travel plans take an unexpected turn… Translated from the French by Kelly Lardin.
