Steffan Piper ☆ 7 Read & Download characters ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Steffan Piper Greyhound characters Ç 7 Cket to Altoona Pennsylvania Sebastien must cross the country alone without a clue how to fend for himselfFilled with youthful anger and naïveté Sebastien heads out into the Morning in America of Ronald Reagan’s 1980s encountering temperamental bus drivers charming shifty and downright dangerous strangers the music of Da What do you do once you ve sat in your seat on the airplane and you re either sitting next to someone who has similarly been slid into the seat with a shoe horn or you re waiting for the person to take the seat next to you A majority of the people who have been seat mates on an airplane have immediately put their nose in a book or pulled out their crescent shaped pillow and closed their eyes But I have had some of the most amazing conversations with people who were willing to engage with another human being who happened to be only an armrest awayThis book is about two people who decided to engage each other in an ongoing conversation cross country on a Greyhound bus I wonder how many opportunities we are given when people cross our paths to have an impact on each other like Marcus and Sebastien did on the bus And I wonder how many of those opportunities we miss or don t take advantage ofThe themes of this book are clear how many young boys grow up unmentored by their father How many fathers fail to show their boys how to become men Either a man or a coward Why do boys have to find their mentor and protector in a strangerAlso there is evil in the world Sebastien encounters it But he also encounters amazing random acts of kindness along his journey Those people go on with their lives and may forget about the 12 year old boy they did something nice for but he will never forget That s why we do random acts of kindness not so we can remember what we did but that others who were the recipients will never forget and smile when they think of themThis was a great book most of which happens within a greyhound bus It s amazing what all can happen on a bus This book almost motivates me to take a bus ride someplace and find out for myself
