Wisdom: "Why was it pebbles looked like boulders until they were in your rearview mirror?"
2¢ Worth: Night Road is a beautifully written cautionary tale about motherhood, raising children too sheltered, friendship, and the enormous life altering decisions young adults face. It moves swiftly and I read it in one sitting. I was happy to see the story felt fresh and took turns I didn't see coming. Sadly, I was unable to connect with any of the characters. I found it hard to relate to the protective mother of teenagers and equally hard to connect with the sheltered teens and their well meaning bff. In the end, this story did not work for me. However, I believe that had more to do with my place in life than the actual story. If you are a mom, definitely check it out. I really believe any mother would love it and probably find themselves moved to tears. I plan to pass on my copy to my mother-in-law.
