Today I’m excited to participate in the Creative Blog Tour for Where the Road Leads Us by Robin Reul hosted by MTMC Tours!
In Where the Road Leads Us, two teens at a crossroads in their personal lives find themselves on an unexpected road trip to
take charge of their destinies. Out on April 6th, 2021 from Sourcebooks Fire!
Jack is on the verge for leaving for college, but before he does, he wants to track down his estranged brother, Alex and find some closure in the wake of their father’s death. Meanwhile, Hallie has just found out some upsetting news about a friend in
Oregon, and she has a small window to go see him before its too late. Jack and Hallie are practically strangers. They shared a class together years ago and haven’t seen each other since, though they have more in common than they’d ever
imagine. And when fate puts them into the same rideshare to the bus terminal, it kicks off an unconventional and hilarious adventure that may lead them to their own true selves…and maybe to each other.

A story involving a road trip? I AM IN!! As the synopsis suggests, Jake is determined to go see his estranged brother before he leaves for college. Hallie is determined to go meet her online friend for the first time before he dies. After they end up sharing the same rideshare, and both of their trains get delayed, they decide to make their way to their destinations together.
The plot was really well planned. I mean, I could hardly notice any flaws because it was so effortlessly smooth! No unnecessary dragging on one theme or one scene, no plot holes and a perfect pacing! A PERFECT PLOT.
The characters were lovely! I mean, it has been quite a long time since I actually felt attached to characters from a contemporary, BUT this book made it happen! All the characters did a really good job at making the story look more relatable and emotionally attracting.
The writing style was quite intriguing and simple. The writing style added a great shine to the story!
About Robin Reul:
The author of MY KIND OF CRAZY and the forthcoming WHERE THE ROAD LEADS US, Robin Reul has been writing since she was in early elementary school, when she used to make her own book club flyers for her classmates and then pen them original stories. Though she grew up on movie sets and worked for many years in the film and television industry both as an actress and in motion picture development, she ultimately decided to focus her attention on writing young adult novels.
Inspired by novelists like John Green and Sarah Dessen and screenwriters like John Hughes and Richard Linklater, she loves to write stories that straddle the line between humor and heartbreak, filled with quirky, memorable characters who stay with the reader long after the story ends. When she’s not writing, Robin can be found drinking copious amounts of iced coffee and listening to way too much 80’s music. She lives in Los Angeles suburbia.
