I’m thrilled to be participating in the Road to Somewhere blog tour. When I signed up for doing this tour, I didn’t exactly know what I was getting myself into. I knew that Road to Somewhere was about singing and one of the characters had a nemesis— a rooster. It wasn’t much to go on but I also hate roosters so I thought I’d give it a shot.
And, oh my gosh, I’ve never loved my hate for roosters more. This book gave me all the feels! Here’s the blurb:
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.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! This young adult novel brought me back to being fifteen and dreaming on my parents front porch. Everything I wanted in an adventure can be found in Road to Somewhere. Road Trip-Check. Horses-Check. Striving to achieve a dream-Check. Hot Cowboys-Check.
But what makes this book really special is the dynamic relationship between Charlie and Lucy. Kelley Lynn and Jenny Morris did a beautiful job capturing the beauty and challenges in sisterhood. Having an older sister myself, I couldn’t help but laugh and cry while reading this novel. It was beautifully written.
I couldn’t put this novel down. I inhaled it in three hours, not paying attention to anyone around me. The only time I paused was to eat a sandwich that was shoved under my nose (thanks husband). I even changed my baby’s diaper while keeping the Kindle next to him so I could keep pace in the story.
It was that good!
Road to Somewhere is a brilliant, heart-warming story. Every one should go buy it for themselves and for every teenage girl they know!
