Ticket to Ride
by Philip Scott Wikel
“Adulthood wasn’t easy when everyone around you wanted you to destroy what adulthood was. “Ticket to Ride” is a novel telling the story of Morgan and Livy coming to adulthood during a time where revolutions of all types were coming ahead and so many messages were going around, no one knew who to follow or believe. “Ticket to Ride” is an exciting read with its own take on the 1960s and 1970s. – James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review, a prestigious reviewer of books connected to “Cengage Learning, Gale Interactive (published four times yearly for academic, corporate, and public library systems), as well as such book review databases as LexisNexis and Goliath.
Ticket to Ride is a timeless tale of two writers coming-of-age. While it’s set in the late 70s Ticket to Ride is as universal in it’s message as Homer’s Odyssey. Enriched with allusions to literary and rock ‘n roll classics, readers of Ticket to Ride will see Morgan and Livy moving from being innocent 17-year-olds to becoming fully realized adults and, like America, anxiously redefining the ideas of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
