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!
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.
