Two men expecting via surrogate go on the road trip of a lifetime in this hilarious and heartwarming novel by Sidney Karger, author of Best Men.

Wyatt Wallace is a type A, plan-following director of TV commercials, and Biz Petterelli is a child-actor-turned-magazine-writer who thrives on spontaneity. Though polar opposites, they are fully committed to their relationship and their life in Brooklyn with their dog, Matilda. They’re also about to have a baby together.

And they’re freaking out.

They’ve both dreamt of becoming parents, but now that it’s happening, they’re doubting everything. Can they change diapers and function on little sleep? Are they ready to give up their exciting, busy life filled with dinner parties, gay bars, Broadway shows, and summers in Fire Island and P-Town? Or can they have a kid and have it all?

Wyatt and Biz’s baby is due in four weeks and instead of flying to California just before the birth as planned, Biz has a better idea. They both could use one last hurrah of blowing off some steam and getting some serious “us-time” to mend the issues they’ve been having lately—before they get tied down by fatherhood and its impending responsibilities.

So they load up their 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet—an impulse buy of Biz’s, of course—and head west. But when they take several unexpected detours, they are forced to reopen old wounds and they discover years-long secrets that could change their relationship for better, or for worse—after all, what’s a road trip without a few bumps along the way?
