The Excerpt

Noah’s eyes repeatedly darted to the review mirror and I swiveled to look out the back window. The sun disappeared behind the mountains bruising the horizon. Shadows stretched across the road, and my heart skipped when I thought I’d spotted motion—a vehicle, but then it was nothing.
I felt like we’d been swallowed by a monster, caught in a gel capsule, catapulting down a dark, curving intestine. The car smelled like nervous sweat and the interior squeezed down on me, pressing my lungs against my ribs.
It had gotten dark and I was glad for the cover. I didn’t have to look into the mirror to know I looked like a plate of raw chicken. Plus, it meant I could cry without Noah freaking out, as long as I did it silently. I leaned my head against the cool window, eyes closed, surreptitiously wiping tears off my face
We drove in silence for what seemed like hours, with only the noise of the wipers intermittently squeaking across the windshield.
I wanted Noah to reach over and take my hand or grip my leg, or anything to reassure me that everything was going to be all right.
For us and with us.
He didn’t. His hands remained firmly on the wheel at two and ten.
