This was such an emotional book. It will take you so very high and you will also hit close to rock bottom. Abby was just such an amazing character, that I'm not even sure where to start. As a girl who has not really experienced life, we actually get to watch her go through all the big moments on the course of her road trip. I had soooo many questions as I got to know her - primarily "what was in the dang urn!!!!!" She was just so full of life that you almost forgot why she was on the road trip to begin with. And then you go down - down - down - as disaster hits her life and she falls apart. I wanted to go give her a big hug and let her cry on my shoulder. Yes, I loved this character that much!
If someone had told me a year ago that I was about to fall in love, go on an epic road
trip, ride a Triceratops, sing on a bar, and lose my virginity, I would have assumed they were on drugs.
Well, that is, until I met Beckham.
Beck was mostly to blame for my recklessness. Gorgeous, clever, undeniably charming Beck barreled into my life as if it were his mission to make sure I never took living for granted. He showed me that there were no boundaries, rules were for the spineless, and a kiss was supposed to happen when I least expected.
Beck was the plot twist that took me by surprise. Two months before I met him, death was knocking at my door. I'd all but given up my last scrap of hope when suddenly, I was given a second chance at life. This time around, I wasn't going to let it slip through my fingers.
We set out on a road trip with nothing to lose and no guarantees of tomorrow.
Our road trip was about young, reckless love.
The kind of love that burns bright.
The kind of love that no road-map could bring me back from.
Beck was also something special. Can I have him please? I promise to take excellent care of him. I love how he just stepped in and accepted Abby and all her quirks without batting an eyelash. He wasn't perfect - but just close enough that you don't mind his little mistakes.
Their road trip was everything the metaphor should be. They traveled down emotional paths that were new and tackled the problems that came about together so they could both reach the next destination. This is everything a New Adult romance is supposed to be.
