What makes you happy?
That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.
And then, I got in his car.
It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.
Discovering his journal changed everything.
I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.
I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.
Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could. THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
On The Way to You is a beautifully written story, about hope and finding the will to find something to live for. Cooper hasn’t had a comfortable life. She has horrible parents and never once has been out of Mobile Alabama. That is until Emery stops at her work and asks her to join him on this road trip. With a split decision, she changes the whole course of her life. They embark on this adventure, they learn about each other. Their hopes and their dreams, the things that they want out of life. There is a darkness in Emery, But Cooper is determined to shine her light. This was a story about finding a way to live again. Maybe you were living, but you weren’t truly living. I think we all do that, at some point in our lives. It was a good story, but for some reason didn’t pull at my heartstrings. I wasn’t able to connect with these characters; there are a lot of moments that can be hard to digest. But it didn’t take me to the ugly cry. I did love the direction that Steiner made with this story, and I think a lot of people can relate to both characters. Overall, I give this Three Boundless Stars.
