The dynamic four; Blake, Sim, Kenny and Ross, all friends since childhood. A great tragedy falls when they receive news of Ross’ death. It was said that he was hit by a reckless driver while riding home on his bike. Anger fills Blake, Sim and Kenny when it comes to Ross’ funeral. The anger because of the hypocrisy of the kids and teachers who made Ross’ life hell. The ones who  showed up, pretending to care about their best friend. The boys set out to vandalize the houses of the hypocrites, in honor if their friend Ross. But this is not enough for the boys. To them, they still needed to give Ross the funeral he deserved.

What was suppose to be a quick 2-day trip, went wrong and become the adventure of a lifetime. The plan was to steal Ross’ ashes and take them from the English coast to the tiny city of Ross in southern Scotland. After losing all of their money, the boys had to do what was necessary from hitchhiking and paid advertising, to illegal train rides and high-speed police chases, all with their friend Ross with them. But a story isn’t a story without the girls.

Along the journey, there is much discovered. Scandals are exposed. Secrets are revealed. Friendships are test. All of this, in honor the Ross Fell. This jam-packed book of adventure, friendships and laughs is sure to entertain and amaze.
