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.

Road to Somewhere finds Charlie on a road trip cross-country road trip with her friends and sister Lucy. Along the way they detour to their grandparents ranch in Texas and have a few laughs. This isn't just another summer vacation for Charlie. The end of the road is a singing competition that could be life changing.
I simply adored this novel! It is a coming of age story told in alternating points of view of the two sisters. Charlie is the sister who is always getting into trouble. She feels like she gets blamed for everything that goes wrong. Lucy is the perfect sister who feels as if no one really knows her. Reading about the sisters from both perspectives was brilliant. Each sister truly meant well but felt equally misunderstood. They both yearn for the friendship they used to have at a younger age.
When they stop at their grandparents ranch in Texas we see both girls reminisce about simpler, happier times. I loved reading about their love for the ranch and their family. We also see the girls embark on young love with a few of the sweet (and handsome) ranch hands.
Overall we see two sisters who ultimately become closer to each other learn the value of sisterhood, being themselves, and coming of age. I was completely enamored with Road to Somewhere and look forward to more great novels from these authors!
