Thank you Simon Pulse for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review!
Past decisions that Ali’s dad has made things quite hard for her and her mom. Now that he’s passed and left Ali and her mom in a lot of debt, it’s time to figure out what to do. Then comes another surprise – Ali’s dad’s car in mint condition. She puts it up on Craig’s List and someone wants it for a great amount of cash. Ali’s willing to drive the 5 hours to sell it, problem is she can’t drive stick. In comes Ali’s ex-boyfriend. He’s willing to help, but is she willing to survive the trip with all the baggage they’ve left for each other?
This book keeps you coming back for more, over and over again! The book references the past multiple times and leaves cliff hangers throughout. Why did her dad leave? What was in Nico’s glovebox that’s driving Ali so crazy? There’s tons of little references like this….Doesn’t make sense to you now, but you’ve just gotta find out for yourself! I felt like I had this uneasy stomach reading it because I felt for Ali so much. She was making such a huge decision to drive so far with her ex just to help her family out. Oh, the anxiety! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Honestly, it was everything in me to not read the last chapter of the book to find my missing answers I so desperately needed. It does remind me of other romance adventure novels, but it was still a very loved book by me.
