"[F]resh and gritty…The mix of humor, gravity, and angst will keep readers engaged, and this debut novel has enough of all three elements to appeal to reluctant and eager male readers alike." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Angry, just-turned-16-year-old Alex, a white boy, and equally angry but very old Lester, a black man, are unlikely road-trip buddies in this novel that transcends its conventions…Alex learns to drive, comes to understand a little of the hard truth of race in post–Civil Rights–era America and spectacularly loses his virginity in a scene that will surprise readers as much as Alex…If there's little doubt about the end of the trip, readers will be happy they've gone along for the ride." — Kirkus Reviews

"Lester and Alex from Cadillac Chronicles are going to live in my literary memory for a long, long time. I think they are two of most likable folks to come along in young adult books for awhile." — Connie Griffin, Bookworks Independent Bookstore

"This road-trip novel is full of humor and surprises that make it a delightful read for teenage boys and many girls as well." — Lyn Miller-Lachmann, Albany Times-Union

"Hartman…makes his YA debut with a hard-hitting road trip novel that’s unafraid to show the ugly sides of American life… the self-knowledge and maturity Alex gains during his travels leave room for hope." — Publishers Weekly
