New! From Bloomsbury Spark, a sunny heartwarming story of discovery and sisterhood.
A road trip. A singing competition. And super-hot cowboys.
What could be better?
For Charlie, a post-high school road trip isn't just a vacation, it's life changing. While her parents think she's helping a friend move, a chance at fame is the real reason to grab her best friends and drive to L.A. But when her super annoying, uber-responsible, younger sister, Lucy, has to tag along, it isn't quite the summer of fun she imagined.Add in a detour to her grandparents' ranch in Texas, and between mucking the stalls, down-home cookin’, and drool worthy ranch hands, this could just turn into the best, and most complicated, summer of their lives.
Road trips are always so much fun for me to read about, and Road to Somewhere sounded like just the fun, light-hearted contemporary I was looking for. Although not a favorite, it was still an entertaining, good read!
From the beginning, I was kind of nervous about whether or not I would like it. In the first chapter, Charlie came across as kind of petty and frustrating. She seemed kind of selfish. However, although she wasn’t my favorite character, she definitely grew on me throughout the book. I did like her sister, Lucy, a lot more, and half the story is told in her pov. I understood her a lot more, and I sympathized with the crazy expectations placed on her by her parents. She was definitely the kinder person.
Both male leads were very nice, too ;) The romance wasn’t the main focus, but I liked how the main emphasis was put on the two sisters. The story was entertaining, and the book was a pretty quick read! I read it in two sittings, and it told a good story.
Road of Somewhere is a good read, especially if you like reading books that involve strong sibling relationships. I’d give it 3 out of 5 flowers :)
