To Get to You by Joanne Bischof
About the Book
To get to the girl he loves, Riley Kane must head off on a road trip with the father he never knew. Then pray for a miracle.
Most teens would love to have a pro surfer for a dad. Just not Riley. Abandoned as a kid, he hates the sound of the ocean and the man who gave himself to it.
When the eighteen-year-old learns that his best friend is stranded at a New Mexico hospital as her father fights for his life, Riley hits the highway to head east. But when his Jeep breaks down before he even leaves California, he must rely on the one man he despises to get to the girl who needs him the most. And when it comes to the surfer with the Volkswagen van and dog-eared map, a thousand miles may–or may not–be enough to heal the past.
A story of new beginnings and second chances.

Author Interview with Joanne Bischof
Joanne Bishof’s latest release, To Get to You, was not a disappointment. Filled with characters you will come to love, as well as, a stunningly written storyline, teens will thoroughly enjoy this down-to-earth, heart-felt novel. This story teaches that everyone has a past, some good, and some we are not so proud of, but that people can change and move on and become better. It touches on difficult relationships between estranged parent and teen, too. This novel reaches out to teens in a new and inspiring way. I would recommend this novel not only to teens, but to their parents so they can learn and grow together.
