When her older sister commits suicide and her divorcing parents decide to divide the ashes, Harper Scott takes her sister's urn to the one place June always wanted to go: California. On the road with her best friend, plus an intriguing guy with a mysterious connection to June, Harper discovers truths about her sister, herself and life.
     First of all, I would like to say this book was a pleasant surprise. When I read the book blurb, I was not expecting the greatness that was inside. It really caught me off guard. I was expecting something good, but (for lack of better words) got goooooood. I actually started reading this on accident. I was supposed to be reading something else, but my boyfriend slipped my Nook in my bag instead of my other book and I needed something to read, so I just picked this. After that, it was like I got swept into Harper's life. I was sucked into her world and couldn't break out of it. From the beginning I felt her heartache and her frustration and every other emotion in the book. There were some points where I was literally crying out loud and my boyfriend came in the room and asked "Are you ok? Oh its just a book..." I felt so connected with Harper and as much as I read, this was a first to be connected with a character THAT much. 
      This was also my first roadtrip book. To help me through it, I listened to the songs that came up throughout the book, many of which I hadn't thought to listen to before and it further connected me to Harper. (This is also what caused me to cry and blubber like an idiot lol) So, not only did I expand my horizon with the different type of book, I also expanded my horizon with the different type of songs. This book taught me a lot about myself. I do like a variety of things, I just have to give it a chance. Nomally I just pass over it, but in this case, I'm glad I didn't. It has opened my world to many other things.
Overall, I give this ***** (5 out of 5)
