About the Book from

Racing home to share news of a long awaited book deal, Aaron Abrams unexpectedly finds his wife and beloved brother TOGETHER. Tossing a few mentionables into the car, along with his golden retriever, Churchill, his now only trustworthy lifelong companion, Aaron embarks on an odyssey like no other. With his own music as a backdrop, while guzzling his favorite Newman's Own Virgin Lemonade, Aaron begins in Youngstown, Ohio, travels interstate 80 in Pennslyvania, and continues into Gettysburg, Pa., Boston Ma., Roswell, NM., to name a few, ultimately ending his road trip in scenic Niagara Falls. Along the way, he continues to embrace each moment, every situation, all relationships and brief encounters. Never losing his zest for life, Aaron stays positive, upbeat and open for adventures, not letting his ex-wife-to-be interfere with his new found freedom, while at the same time rediscovering and recreating bonds that will never be broken. The game of Jinx has never gotten so much attention; what that means the reader is soon to discover

Mr. Moffie introduces us to Aaron a son to be divorced 47 year old man who decides after his wifes infidelity to go on a rode trip. In this book you are in for a wild ride. While is not normally the type of book I would read it did open my eyes to a different style of writing. While it won't appeal to some its had great prose and humor. One thing I did to make the book enjoyable was play the songs he talked about in his book it made you really live the story. While I found some of the humor vulgar at times I think I know why he included it to reflect the main characters personality. Would I read this again probably not but I am thankful to be given an opportunity to review this. I would recommend it to most men because the tend to like the locker room humor presented in this book. Most women would not find it appealing.

I give this book a 3.5/5

It sounds like an interesting premise, but I'm not big on locker room humor.
