Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations. It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago. What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV

The Mother Road, is one of those stories that just sticks with you, well after you’ve finished reading. It was probably one of the funniest, most heartfelt books I’ve read in a long time. Marley is a girl, she’s a blogger and she loves what she does. Four years ago a boy broke her heart. Not someone she’ll ever forget. On a clear sunny day, Her Brother and Father pull up in the old family RV aka Tacy. To do the RoadTrip that they’ve been destined to do! Their mother who pased away when they were younger, had planned this trip. And in honor of her, Marley’s brother Paul decides he wants to do it as part of his Bachelor party. Going on the road with his family and… you guessed it the best friend Preston. Not someone Marley ever thought she would really see again. Or cross paths with. Let me just say.. Preston and Marley are probably one of best characters in a story. That I’ve ever met. I loved how Marley was with all of them. Yes, she could come off bitchy, but on the inside she was all heart, just like her mother. The series of events that follow this foursome, are hilarious but yet in a lot of ways heartbreaking. ‘.. But life isn’t worth living if you never put your heart on the line, if you don’t try new things. Pain can be short lived, ‘could have beens’ will live with you forever. Don’t live in a bowl full of regrets.” This is the first book I’ve read written by Quinn. Just based off of this book, I can’t wait to read more from her. Overall, I can’t give anything less than a 5! I had a connection with these characters and seriously loved this story.
