The 40th anniversary edition of a groundbreaking teen classic. When the grandmother who raised him dies, Davy Ross, a lonely thirteen-year-old boy, must move to Manhattan to live with his estranged mother. Between alcohol-infused lectures about her self-sacrifice and awkward visits with his distant father, Davy's only comfort is his beloved dachshund Fred. Things start to look up when he and a boy from school become friends. But when their relationship takes an unexpected turn, Davy struggles to understand what happened and what it might mean.

John Donovan was a novelist and a playwright, who also served as the president of the Children's Book Council. I'll Get There It Better Be Worth the Trip was originally published in 1969 and reprinted by Dell in 1973
