When Anna sets out on a post high school road trip toward an unknown destination with best friend Kat, she thinks she's prepared for everything. Clipboard in hand, she checks off her lists: Set up tent. Study maps. Avoid bears. Feelings are not on any list. For the past year - ever since her mother's sudden death - Anna has shut down her emotions and shut out the people who love her most.
Kat is a different story. Clutching a well-worn copy of Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums, she radiates enthusiasm. Maybe, she thinks, this road trip will shake Anna back to life. Zigzaging across the Northwest, the girls encounter fellow travelers of all kinds. But throughout their journey, one question haunts Anna. It begins like a gentle rain and then becomes a raging storm: What place does Kat have in my life? Are we good friends? Or something more.
Kiss the Morning Star has been chosen as a finalist for the 2013 Lambda Literary Award in the Young Adult category.

"Are we ...okay?"
I have no idea what we are.
"I'm hungry and tired and dirty and lonely and scared and a whole lot of other things I don't even want to begin thinking about." I look up. "And here's our ride," I say, holding out my arm, thumb extended.
Kat howls, jumps up and down, waves her arms frantically at what appears to be a bright blue- painted school bus.
She plants a sudden kiss on my lips as the bus pulls over just ahead of us. "I love you, Anna!" she sings, and then she turns and runs toward the open door of the bus, leaving me with the words, cut loose like a fish released, the one who bites again regardless of the result. I hook my fingers behind the straps of my backpack and run after Kat, after the shiny lure of her smile.
Together, we step into the unknown, true dharma bums at last.
