Review: Start Here

Start Here
Willa, Taylor, and Finley were supposed to spend the summer after high school sailing from Ohio to Key West in their sailboat. But Finley died before high school ended and made her two best friends promise to go without her.

Willa and Taylor are not really friends. Finley was the glue that held them together. But a promise is a promise...

Finley leads them a list of clues, places to see and experiences to have at stopping points during the trip. It's going to take all summer. Neither Willa nor Taylor is sure they will survive that long in each other's company.

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. I love friendship stories and road trip books and summer books. All of those combined made this one to read. I liked the dual perspectives. I loved traveling with the two girls and going along on their adventure. They were Brave! I liked how Finley tied them together and that she died very quickly in the beginning of the book. It's not about her; it's about the two girls picking up the pieces of their lives and moving on. It's about discovering yourself and who you want to be (and who you don't want to be). There's romance, summer fun, and a great story. Highly recommend it when you need a summer read. 

Cover Thoughts: Cute! Love the pictures
