After high school, all eighteen-year-old Olivia wants is a new start. But when she quits her summer job in Yellowstone National Park (all she will say about the situation is that it involved a guy named Lindsey, too much medication, and a super-sized Coke cup full of vodka), Olivia, a former straight-A student, descends into a life of bipolar madness. It's like being stuck on the Viking ship on the carnival after Mexican night at the employee dining room-nauseating at first, disorienting, but once you give in and enjoy the ride it can become exhilarating. The characters Olivia meets along her travels are bizarre enough to rival any freak show. There's Jenny and Polly the three hundred pound multiple-personalitied lesbians; Dave her schizophrenic tattooed mentor; John Motherfuckin' Ryan the traveling hippy/gypsy/pirate; Ed the redneck psychic; and the car that carries her through it all, her trusty '94 Saturn, a character in its own right. Through it all, she keeps on driving, to the edge of sanity, perhaps beyond. And the ultimate realization is that no matter how weird it gets, you just have to trust your bliss and everything will be all right.
