When twelve-year-old Maya's parents sell their house and move the family into the world's ugliest RV to travel the country, Maya's only goal is to get back home -- and fast. No way is she going to miss the chance to audition for Dueling Duets, the singing competition show that's going to surely propel her -- and her cowboy-hatted crush -- to country stardom.
Operation Maya Goes Home, or OMGH, turns out to be more complicated than she had expected, so Maya sets out on a secret one-day, one-hundred-mile bike ride through Yellowstone National Park with her know-it-all little sister, a cute nature boy, and blue-haired, earbud-addicted Shiver (a.k.a. the most annoying girl ever). Somewhere between the worst muscle ache she's ever experienced and losing half of their group to a flat tire, Maya starts wondering if maybe, just maybe, it's possible to find home in the last place you expected.
"This quirky and entertaining coming-of-age story is perfect for middle-grade readers, with enough realistic family dynamics, sarcasm, adventure, and music to keep them entertained until the closing number." — Meghan Oppelt, Booklist
