Product description


Praise for JUST GET HOME

"A natural disaster is a terrifying backdrop for this briskly paced yet emotional novel, and readers will be hard-pressed to put the book down before reaching its satisfying ending. This title will appeal to readers who enjoyed The River at Night, by Erica Ferencik, or One by One, by Ruth Ware." --Library Journal

"Author Bridget Foley tackles many subjects in Just Get Home: disaster preparedness (or the lack thereof), cultural and economic differences, racism and racial prejudices, violence, infidelity, friendship and foster care. These issues are seamlessly woven into the narrative, but they are addressed in such a way as to force readers to confront them on some level.... Fast-paced writing, well-developed characters and a compelling storyline make it a memorable read that book clubs will want to discuss." -Bookreporter

"Told with artful suspense-building...the duo's journey across the sprawling metropolis will compel the reader." --Booklist

"A heart-pounding tale of urban survival... Complex lives and nuanced emotional strength... Readers will breathlessly root for Beegie, Dessa, and Olivia." --Publishers Weekly

"Thrilling, yes, but so much more than a thriller. Set to the tune of a life-altering (and vividly rendered) earthquake, Foley brings together two very different women who discover an ultimate commonality: knowing what matters. Written with aplomb, precision, and courage, Just Get Home is a breathtaking achievement." --Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Malorie

"I turned the pages of Just Get Home like I was reading a flat-out thriller, at that magical couldn't-put-it-down, must-find-out-what-happens pace, but that's only the beginning of this wonder of a novel because it's also smart and insightful on timely, important, difficult ideas. Its characters and their relationships are heartbreaking and complicated in the best way, at once entirely relatable, instantly recognizable, and unlike anything you've read before.
This is addictive reading that changes you as you turn the pages and stays with you long after you've finished.
It is a genre-bender in my favorite way: it has the best of everything."
--Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is

"JUST GET HOME by Bridget Foley hits the thriller trifecta: a natural disaster, danger around every corner and compelling well-drawn characters who unite to survive the most harrowing journey of their lives.
Foley effortlessly weaves together the voices of Beegie and Dessa to chronicle a night filled with devastation, terror, heartbreak and ultimately hope as they try to make it home after a deadly earthquake. Inventive, emotional and addictive, JUST GET HOME is not to be missed."
--Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and This is How I Lied

"An edge-of-your-seat thriller about two people who meet up right after a devastating earthquake has hit LA. Just Get Home hits all of the suspense buttons, and Bridget Foley knows how to make your nightmares come to life!" -Mary O'Malley, Skylark Books, Columbia MO
