"Khristine Hvam's narration is as heartfelt as the story of 12-year-old Coyote Sunrise...Both the story and Hvam's distinctive narration will linger in listeners' minds." — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner

Five years.

That's how long Coyote and her dad, Rodeo, have lived on the road in an old school bus, criss-crossing the nation.

It's also how long ago Coyote lost her mom and two sisters in a car crash.

Coyote hasn’t been home in all that time, but when she learns that the park in her old neighborhood is being demolished—the very same park where she, her mom, and her sisters buried a treasured memory box—she devises an elaborate plan to get her dad to drive 3,600 miles back to Washington state in four days...without him realizing it.

Along the way, they'll pick up a strange crew of misfit travelers. Lester has a lady love to meet. Salvador and his mom are looking to start over. Val needs a safe place to be herself. And then there's Gladys...

Over the course of thousands of miles, Coyote will learn that going home can sometimes be the hardest journey of all...but that with friends by her side, she just might be able to turn her “once upon a time” into a “happily ever after.”

Praise for The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise:

"If Katherine Applegate says a book “just plain makes you want to hug the world,” you know there’s magic there. And if you have narrator Khristine Hvam delivering a warm, slightly twangy performance as said book’s travel-worn protagonist, then that’s a listening experience not to be missed." - Paste.com

Khristine Hvam's narration is as heartfelt as the story of 12-year-old Coyote Sunrise...Both the story and Hvam's distinctive narration will linger in listeners' minds. AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner
“Coyote’s bold, engaging voice pops off the page…Gemeinhart infuses the story with moments of lyrical writing and folksy wisdom served up with a dollop of girl power.” New York Times
“Khristine Hvam’s narration is as heartfelt as the story of twelve-year-old Coyote Sunrise…Hvam’s Coyote radiates bravado and a can-do attitude that mirrors her father’s. Yet this bravado turns on a dime into whispery sadness or stone-voiced determination as Coyote comes to realize that hiding from the past has kept her from being her true self…Both the story and Hvam’s distinctive narration will linger in listeners’ minds. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Your heart needs this joyful miracle of a book.” Katherine Applegate, author of Wishtree
