A journey with family and friends

Event consists of a short presentation followed by an audience Q&A, which is a great time for kids to ask questions about the book or writing in general. Afterwords, Dan will sign books.

About the Book: Five years. That's how long Coyote and her dad, Rodeo, have lived on the road in an old school bus, criss-crossing the nation. It's also how long ago Coyote lost her mom and two sisters in a car crash.
Coyote hasn't been home in all that time, but when she learns that the park in her old neighborhood is being demolished--the very same park where she, her mom, and her sisters buried a treasured memory box--she devises an elaborate plan to get her dad to drive 3,600 miles back to Washington state in four days...without him realizing it.
Along the way, they'll pick up a strange crew of misfit travelers. Lester has a lady love to meet. Salvador and his mom are looking to start over. Val needs a safe place to be herself. And then there's Gladys...
Over the course of thousands of miles, Coyote will learn that going home can sometimes be the hardest journey of all...but that with friends by her side, she just might be able to turn her "once upon a time" into a "happily ever after."

A unique book with an even more unique message. Federle writes an inspirational book with hints of his own boyhood and tricks in Broadway. Life is Like a Musical shows us that your own story is not what your parents or your siblings think you should do but what you want. I would give this book to anyone who just needs a life boost. - Kaitlyn, customer age 12
