About this Article
Sixteen-year-old Gracie Sullivan is book-smart and resourceful, but her 18-year-old sister, Danielle, is self-involved and boy-crazy. As C.J. Box's "The Highway" opens, they're driving cross-country to celebrate Thanksgiving with their dad -- until plans change. Danielle detours toward Helena, Mont., to woo her boyfriend, Justin Hoyt. A long-haul trucker and sexual predator who calls himself the Lizard King trails them through Montana in his Peterbilt semi. And things get worse from there.
