I thoroughly enjoyed this story! The author did a great job of making me feel like I was experiencing the ups and downs of the challenging time known as the teenage years! There were some very deep situations and events that were discussed in this edgy, Christian, young adult novel. I would recommend it to older teens.
The author captured the feelings of uncertainty, attraction, confusion, hurt, and many more emotions so well. I loved reading as the characters bantered back and forth, learning a little more about each other as each mile passed. I enjoyed this story from start to finish and it was easy to feel as if these characters were real and heading off to college in the next few months!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Natalie Rhodes left her house early that fateful morning to catch the bus to her senior class trip, she never expected to end up in a car with Colton Daynes–the guy she’s had a crush on since first grade, the guy who has no idea who she is. But when Colton’s irresponsible driving causes them both to miss the bus, the unlikely pair set off on a road trip from Michigan to Virginia Beach to catch up with their classmates.
From the little village of Middleville, the popular football star and the quiet gymnast will navigate back roads and highways, travel from lake towns to waterfalls to mountaintops and beyond, all the while fielding texts from Colton’s friends and mean girl, Lexi, who also happens to be Colton’s girlfriend and Natalie’s former best friend.
Hours spent together on the road will lead them to places they’ve never been, discovering hidden talents, revealing secrets and fears. And they just might realize they have more in common than they know.
