Four teens across the country have no idea where they want to be. That is, until a mysterious girl named Leila jumps into their lives at a time when they need it most. But when the time comes for Leila to fulfil her own journey, she must realize that sometimes she must find herself, before helping others find themselves.
This book was a great summer road-trip book that was quite like Paper Towns by: John Green. It was very much a feel-good novel, and I enjoyed it. However, I didn't find that it was anything spectacular.
I love road trip books, and this one made me feel all light and fluffy inside. I loved how the story was from five points of view, and each in a different state. All of the stories were connected, into one bigger story. I thought that the structure was cool.
The characters were okay in this book, but I didn't find them all that realistic or emotional. In fact, I found them to be quite impulsive. Each character seemed to get in some unlikely trouble that could have been easily avoided. The first character, Hudson, was my least favourite because he seemed so naive. He falls in love with the first girl he meets, then proceeds to throw away an opportunity of a lifetime because he wasn't thinking straight. It's not that the characters were boring, just annoying.
The plot had some great fluff in it, but I didn't think it was enough to make it an amazing read. It was simple, I liked the road trip and I liked the message, I just couldn't connect with any of the characters.
