I received this ARC at ALA2012. Here's my honest review:
Something about this didn't connect all the way with me. I still enjoyed it and read most of it in one sitting, but I didn't feel it 100%. I did like that it was really different from most YA novels I've read lately. There was no real love story, let alone a triangle. It's a road trip story, but it's also kind of a runaway story. And there were layers to this one. It isn't just what's on the surface. The book isn't super deep, but it deals with illness and OCD among other stuff. Good topics to tackle.
Kendra has some issues, but so does her brother. They get a chance to deal with them together on this impromptu road trip. It takes a long time for them to get to the bottom of things, and lots of other events occur (like meeting new people along the way), but they persevere to accomplish when Kendra set out to do. I wasn't sure if they'd ever get there with so many obstacles and discoveries, but it all turns out to be beneficial, good or bad. Check this out if you like road trip YA novels or YA books without the romance all over the place.
