Synopsis:

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.

My reviews are spoiler free!!

Confession:
I’m that “horrible person” that judges a book by its cover, but it’s okay because I know I’m not the only one. So I will admit that when I first saw the cover I instantly signed up for the blog tour, not even knowing what this book was about. And than I read the title (which is catchy!) than the synopsis and I thought to myself “Road to Somewhere? Road trip? Life goal? MUST READ.

THIS BOOK TOOK ME FOR A RIDE.

Yes, pun intended.
This book is fantastic, absolutely without a doubt a book I will be recommending to people. This book is about so much more than just romance, and I say this because I know there will be people who’ll pick this up hoping for a solid romance novel. Road to Somewhere is more about self-discovery and strained relationships. 

I really enjoyed the dual POVs between Lucy and Charlie, this allowed more insight into their strained relationship and their thoughts on one another. The theme in Road to Somewhere is one I believe many teenagers and even adults can relate to. The stress of post-secondary and having to make “the right” decisions, worrying about being a disappointment to your parents, expectations (especially if you have siblings) to live up to, the ups & downs of relationships are all the things that make this book realistic. And this I believe is important because it allows the reader to make an actual connection with the characters.

The only reason why this did not get 5 stars was because I am not a fan of the ending. The abruptness of it left me wanting more. Is there a sequel? Because I really hope so!!

If you want a unique and beautifully written book to read, go and buy a copy of Road to Somewhere!

4.5 stars
