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.
I’m tempted to not even write a review for this book. Yup it was THAT good and you need to TRUST me and just go ONE CLICK THAT BITCH NOW!!! To sum up how I feel, here was my message to Meghan when I finished…
“You made me laugh till my stomach hurt and a little pee came out and you then made me cry!! AGH!!! .”
This story of a cross country road trip brought back memories from my childhood. The pranks and teasing remind me so much of me and my siblings. I thought back to my youth, my first crush, MIX TAPES!!! You remember those right? I now want to whip out the boom box and get recording LMAO
Porter is TOTALLY a new fave BBF, especially after this…
Speaking the truth, I say, “I think you’re more beautiful and interesting version of Winnie Cooper.” I sigh and lick my lips. “Like Kevin Arnold, I finally get to hold the girl next door who’s always captured my heart.”
I was immediately able to connect with all of the characters, finding that they each match someone in my life. Marley is sarcastic and funny and goofy and Porter is swoon-worthy-sex-on-a-stick and heartfelt. You will laugh to the point of shooting coffee out your nose and you will need a tissue here and there as well…don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I am confident that after reading this book I will one day make this trip with my family and I hope to make as many memories with them as Marley, Paul, Porter and Bernie did! The Mother Road is full of fun and love and I cannot recommend it enough….#NoRegrets
