    This was a recommendation from the fabulous Jen Adams and I'm so glad I took her up on it! What a beautiful, funny-sad, remarkable story! This book reminded me of the best of the Newbery books combined with The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (but for younger folks). I quickly fell i...

    I am not a Dan Gemeinhart fan. His books are too "Perils of Pauline" for me. You know, one cliffhanging event after another. However, my Mock Newbery group nominated this book as a possible contender for 2020, to be read in March. So I read it. Gemeinhart stayed true to his style. Coyo...

    Oh, Dan Gemeinhart, why do you write such incredible books that rip me apart, then put me back together again. First it was The Honest Truth. Then came Good Dog. Not to mention Scar Island. Each so different, yet kept me thinking about them for days after finishing; each leaving an ind...

    2 stars for me. 4 for the readers I will give it to, whom will love it. This really should be the kind of story I would go gaga over. A story from the road with mismatched compadres coming together for a greater purpose, is very much in my wheelhouse. I'm can't quite put my fing...

    Interest Level: 3-6 Do you think it would be fun to have your house be a school bus that was gutted and turned into a home? You could go just about anywhere in the US whenever you want. Fun, right? Well, Coyote Sunrise didn't have a problem with it, at least not until everything cha...

    An emotional 4.5-star rating! And I mean that in a good way. It?s just too good and sweet and sad and weak and strong and wise and funny to be otherwise. Cried my eyes out. And honestly the scene toward the beginning when Rodeo discovers Ivan had me cracking up out loud. the scen...

    I LOVED this book! Coyote, a 12-year-old girl, and Rodeo (which I pronounced as Roh-DAY-oh in my head every time!), her dad, have been on the road, living in a converted school bus, for 5 and a half years. They are on the run from the tragedy of losing their mom/wife and two little gir...

    My heart. I sobbed and sobbed and clutched this book to my chest. It will stay with me forever. - - - - - ?Sometimes making friends is tough, and sometimes it?s as simple as finding someone who loves books and kittens as much as you do.? ?There is so much sadness in t...

    E ARC from Netgalley.com Coyote and her father, Rodeo, travel around the US in a converted school bus they call Yager. Their life seems pretty comfortable, and they go wherever they want (especially if it involves some really good destination food), but they are on the road because ...

    I couldn't stomach this one. It was over-the-top with the quirkiness as they kept adding people to the bus and then even a goat. I rolled my eyes at the goat. I just wasn't into it. I stand by my assessment that there were some real believability issues when it came to how Coyote a...

    The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise definitely lives up to its name. This book is quite remarkable. It tells the story of not just Coyote's journey but also, in a way, of the journeys all the people that she meets throughout this book. When the story begins, Coyote is living on a ...

    Dan Gemeinhart does it again! This book should really come with tissues because it ripped my heart out and made me cry happy and sad tears throughout the entire book. Rodeo and Coyote are a father/daughter duo that live on the road in an old school bus called Yager. They have b...

    Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC of this title for review. All opinions are my own. This was AMAZING. There's really no other way to say it. I have been a fan of Gemeinhart since I first read The Honest Truth a few years ago, and have enjoyed...

    This is a story of Coyote, a 12-year-old girl, and her dad as they have been on the road, living in a converted school bus for five years, trying to run away from the memories that broke their hearts. This book is amazing. There's really no other way to say it. It?s about family and ...

    ???? They all TOLD me to read this one, and they were RIGHT! I dug in yesterday afternoon and this morning when it was time for my walk I just couldn?t stop, so I switched to the audio version on Scribd and only took a quick break for my shower. I listened while I got r...

    5 stars! What a beautiful and heartfelt story! I have to admit, I picked this book up because I had some serious cover love happening. Well, the attractive cover caught my attention and I ended up loving this story. Five years ago, Coyote's sisters and mother died in an acciden...

    I realize it's early to call my favorite middle grade read of 2019, but I cannot imagine a book topping this one for me. If you enjoyed Mosquitoland by David Arnold then you'll love this. I loooove a main character with spunk and wit who you find yourself cracking up through all her in...

    There is a climactic moment in this book that the narrator describes as ?just like in some dumb movie.? And that?s really what this book is. I am tempted to rate it lower because I don?t like movies that are emotionally manipulative and have a warped moral compass in the sense ...

    I found this book, though expertly crafted and addictively engaging, as pleasant and believable as yet not. I loved the bus-adventure premise, the non-judgmental friendships accrued along the way promoting kindness. And I enjoyed the quirky characterizations and spunky dialogue lac...

    If I could rate this book a trillion stars, I would. Holy moly this was amazing. I have been reading some good middle-grade for Middle-Grade March, and this was my next to last. Honestly, I hate that I waited all month to read it, but also happy I went out with a BANG because this ...

    This book was AMAZING!!! I cried for the last 50 pages at least. This book is a good story of keeping your family close even when things are tough. The things that Coyote goes through is crazy and the way she handles them is amazing. Coyote is definitely a great role model for young gi...

    Oh, this book. I just finished, and happy tears are running down my cheeks. It is the perfect mix of sad and hopeful. This book is one to read aloud in grade 5 and 6, a text to "booktalk" for book club choices, and a book to put in students' hands who love stories of family and friends...
