'18 in America: A Young Golfer's Epic Journey to Find the Essence of the Game' by Dylan Dethier
At 17, Dylan Dethier couldn't help but think that he hadn't really done anything with his life.
So, two months before his freshman year begins, he defers admission to Williams College.
With the reluctant blessing of his parents, Dylan set out on his idea of the Great American Road Trip: to play a round of golf in each of the lower 48 states.
What began as the teenage wanderlust of a sheltered New England kid became a journey into America's heart and soul, to "figure out where and why golf fit in" and what it means to be a young man today.

From the time she was born, Michelle Theall knew she was different.
Coming of age in the Texas Bible Belt, a place where it was unacceptable to be gay, Theall found herself at odds with her strict Roman Catholic parents, bullied by her classmates, abandoned by her evangelical best friend whose mother spoke in tongues, and kicked out of Christian organizations that claimed to embrace her - all before she'd ever held a girl's hand.
At 43 years old and seemingly settled in her decision to live life openly as a gay woman, Theall and her partner attempt to have their son baptized into the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in the liberal town of Boulder, Colo.
Her quest to have her son accepted into the church leads to a battle with Sacred Heart and with her mother that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about the bonds of family and faith.
