"As he did in Marley , Grogan makes readers feel they have a seat at the family dinner table....4 stars."
-- People

John Grogan, author of the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestseller, Marley & Me , once again takes readers into his past, his memories, and his heart in The Longest Trip Home --a funny and poignant memoir of faith, family, and identity. A New York Times bestseller in its own right, The Longest Trip Home has earned glowing accolades from the critics ("Genuinely heartrending," -- New York Times "Wry and witty," -- Washington Post ; "Entertaining, funny, and, best of all, always honest at its core," -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch ). And, just as Marley & Me was more than simply "a dog book," John Grogan's Longest Trip is much, much more than your typical story of a boy's coming-of-age.

It's funny but I sort of lost interest in an account of being a teenager in suburban Detroit in the 1970's.

Love John Grogan's style. Funny and heartwarming. A must read for those who enjoyed his other book 'Marley and Me.'
