A road-trip story about following your dreams and embracing the unexpected. Megan knows what she wants out of life and she intends to get it, whatever her parents say.
Elliott has given up on all his plans for the future – but then Megan
bursts into his life with a proposal that could change it forever.
Together they embark on a road trip to escape their hometown and chase
their dreams. But life is a journey and not even Megan can control where
theirs will lead…
If you’re in need of a cute, heart-warming, sweet and fascinating book, just go straight to this one. From the get-go, you know this is going to be a good story: great characters, great voices, interesting plot… the whole package works!
The story is told from both Megan and Elliott’s point of view. I loved both their voices and how relatable and realistic they sounded. What I liked the most about them, though, was how raw they felt. They both long for freedom, they want to find their place and be themselves, they’re young and wild and so full of hope it made my heart puff up in my chest with excitement for their story together.
Elliott and Megan are not the only characters, though, and I really enjoyed the fact that both Becca and Sean (respectively Megan’s best friend and Elliott’s brother) got their own plot and arc as well, and in their way they were main characters too, as well as great friends.
The chapters were short and efficient, and it was very easy to read. I liked the inclusion of photos, text messages and conversations. That was a nice touch.
Still, the best thing remains the message: what matters is being yourself and doing what you love. The whole story was carefully crafted, clever and a little crazy but always very cute. And I loved every page of it.
