“Humor and depth . . . Often entertainingly snarky” — The Horn Book
“A wonderful novel about friendship, love, travel, life, hope, poetry, intelligence and the inner lives of girls. Margo Rabb writes with compassion and clarity about lives that are worth telling, journeys that need to be taken, peace that needs to be reached. I loved it.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray Love
You are pretty much taken on this journey with Eva Roth. She has experienced loss of a loved one, feeling alienated by her mother, has only one true friend, falls in love, goes on a very long road trip and gets her heartbroken and finds truth to everything she thought she knew the answers to, all in the course of one book.
I really didn't care for her mom, she was overbearing, controlling and wouldn't let her daughter experience things for herself. I could understand that she only wanted to protect her daughter, but you need to let teens learn on their own. And her Aunt Janet, I could only picture my own Aunt when reading her. I could have lived without the romance book references though.
To me this was a really thought out book, I'm glad that I read it, and I'm glad it wasn't some mushy gushy romance book like I anticipated it to be.
