I loved this book! Neta Jackson portrays a senior citizen, recently widowed, who decides to honor her husband’s memory by taking a motorcycle trip he had planned for them both. No matter that she has never driven a bike, she can learn and learn she does. Throw in her dog, wearing goggles no less, and a runaway granddaughter who begs to accompany her, and you have the beginning of a never to be forgotten adventure.

Jackson takes on some tough subjects in this book, it is not all fun and games. She touches on guns, racism and homosexuality to mention a few. Uphill both ways will make you laugh, make you cry and make you think. Highly recommended!


Rating (1 to 5):
