I knew from the blurb this story may not be what I’d first thought when I looked at the title and cover. It could be something a little different.
Yes there is a hostage scenario – but not in the normal sense… And yes there is a road trip (as the cover suggests), but this too is not as you think.
I felt so much for Tully (the m/c) at how tough she had made herself after moving from town to another with her dysfunctional alcoholic mother. Tully has built walls against making and breaking friendships, and meeting and liking her mum’s boyfriends. But underneath, even if she does love her grandfather; she still hopes for reconciliations and a better life.
And just for once – she has control of what happens….
