"One measly little car crash. And suddenly, I'm some kind of convicted felon."
Alex is the Midnight Driver in Sonnenblick's novel. Even though it seemed like a good idea at the time, Alex took his mom's car after taking some of his dad's vodka. After all, he just needed to talk to his dad about the impending divorce. No one would be on the roads at midnight. Alex was busted without a license for decapitating Mrs. Wilson's lawn gnome.
Notes from the Midnight Driver is not just the story following the lawn gnome incident where Alex accepts the responsibility and consequences for his actions. It's an, at times, hilarious journey with his guitar, his best friend, Laurie, and the friendship of a lifetime.
