Hiya peeps! Miss me? It’s been a wee bit hectic around here, but I’m settling down and so excited to bring you the playlist for my agent sisters, Kelley Lynn and Jenny S. Morris’s new novel ROAD TO SOMEWHERE!
I loved this book. It brought me right back to being sixteen, idolizing my gorgeous, confidant older sister, Kate. Ironically, growing up, we always joked that she was the pretty one, and I was the smart one, which really struck a chord with me as I was reading ROAD TO SOMEWHERE. Or jump ahead, and this book brought me back to being twenty-two, standing in line with her to audition for American Idol. Seriously, the first thing I’m doing once I finish writing this is sending a copy of ROAD TO SOMEWHERE right to her. Then I’m sending it to my sixteen year-old daughter.
These ladies write flawlessly, with voices so attuned to one another you can’t tell it was written by two women! The voices of the girls are distinct, and yet it flows seamlessly. Pacing will keep you with it, and leave you with a need to pick up the phone and call your sister.
ROAD TO SOMEWHERE has romance, sure, but it’s not a “romance.” It’s more than that. It’s about the relationship between sisters. It’s about dreams, choices, chances, and consequences – about finding yourself with someone who might indeed know you best… your own sister.
If you’re a fan of YA, this is right up your alley. Snag it, read it, savor it, and then pass it on to who needs it next! And while you’re at it, play some of these tunes! These are the ones that struck a chord with me, but they’re in no particular order. Wouldn’t want to give anything away, right?

Here’s a little about the book!
New! From Bloomsbury Spark, a sunny 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.
Go grab it now!
