**A rock star’s demise spurs a road trip for his daughter in “****a stellar, thought-provoking novel about life, death, California, music, and more” (Library Journal, starred review). **
Adrift in Los Angeles, Clem Jasper is a twenty-seven-year-old trust funder with a world-famous rock musician for a father. Unsure of what do with her life, she spends her time just floating, a cynical observer of the Hollywood scene around her. But when her dad suddenly dies, Clem discovers he’s left her something for her—a series of letters that send her on a strange and revelatory road trip across the iconic Californian terrain.
Following each of her father’s beautifully composed words, Clem embarks on her own journey to discover just what it was that her father wanted her to find—a secret he couldn’t tell her until now.
Perfect for readers of Rainbow Rowell, Driftwood captures the mythology of the West Coast with an exhilarating take on the freedom of the open road, and what it means—even in the midst of grief—to be a family, and to finally get in tune with the rhythm of life. “If you’ve never been to California, you might feel like you have visited after reading this creative and unforgettable story. For connoisseurs of singular fiction.” —Library Journal, starred review
