by Dylan Detheir
My parents have always been supportive of my hair-brained ideas, but I am absolutely positive that if had I told them I was going to set out on a year long cross country golfing expedition at the tender young age of 17 the proverbial foot down would have been put down. Luckily for us Dylan Detheir’s parents were quite a bit more adventure minded than mine and because of that we get to read 18 In America.
As a 17 year old high school graduate Dylan left his home in small town Massachusetts and struck out on the road with a plan to see the country and do so by playing golf in each of the lower 48 states. From there, as they say, adventure ensued. From a high stakes golf game in Vegas to a teenage crush on a local Arkansas news anchor named Holly Sonders (yes, THAT Holly Sonders) this book is a great coming of age tale based around the most epic of golf trips. A quick and easy read that does not disappoint.
