On the first day of Lillian’s summer-before-college, she gets a message on her cell from her sort-of friend, Penny. Not only has Penny faked her own kidnapping, but Lil is the only one who figures it out. She knows that Penny’s home life has been rough, and that her boyfriend may be abusive. Soon, Penny’s family, the local police, and even the FBI are grilling Lil, and she decides to head out to Oregon, where Penny has mentioned an acquaintance. And who better to road-trip across the country with than Lil’s BFF, Josh. But here’s the thing: Lil loves Josh. And Josh doesn’t want to “ruin” their amazing friendship.Josh has a car and his dad’s credit card. Lil has her cellphone and a hunch about where Penny is hiding. There’s something else she needs to find: Are she and Josh meant to be together?-- GoodreadsJosh and Lillian go on a road trip of a lifetime. They have been best friends since childhood and Lil wants to take an adventure before she leaves for college and he stays there for the rest of his life. When Lillian’s somewhat-friend, Penny, fakes her own kidnapping, they even have more of a cause to go on the road trip. They need to find her and bring her back home. In this summer read, the road is waiting for you to take a journey. Just Don’t Stop Now.
This is purely a summer read. Summer reads are meant to be fast and easy pieces that you read on the beach. This one was very easy to read. It took me about a day to finish and as much as I thought it was good, I’ve heard it all before.
