Publisher's Description

It’s senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect. When she gets a D in Calculus, her mother immediately hires a tutor, worried Whitney won’t get into the “right” college—her alma mater—with imperfect grades. Her tutor, Taylor, is a quiet, mysterious boy who is unlike anyone Whitney has met before. But Taylor’s rougher upbringing has her mother and friends discouraging any type of relationship.

Tired of having to play a part for everyone else, Whitney quits the cheerleading squad that once defined her social identity, and begins spending more time with Taylor. Her mom and friends worry Whitney is making a huge mistake, and even Taylor begins to show concern for some of her choices. But for the first time, Whitney is in the driver’s seat of her life. Will she be able to find her identity—and God’s plan for her life—before she throws everything away?

    I have been waiting for the sequel to Roadside Assistance to come out. I really enjoyed the first one and wanted to see how Whitney's life turns out. Well, I was equally happy with the second book. Now we await the third.

    Whitney is a senior in high school. She should be having the time of her life. Her grades have always been good. She has a football player boyfriends. She is in the popular crowd. However, things start to unravel around Valentine's Day. Her boyfriend breaks up with her and letter to her mother comes in the mail. Her Calculus grade is way less than spectacular. Her mother feels that she needs a tutor in order for her to get into the right school. Whitney is feeling the pressure to be perfect in everyone's eyes. She doesn't want to admit she needs help at first. She just wants to finish her senior year and move on to her own life.

    Whitney's mother is very annoying in the book. She is very demanding and very controlling. Her father is more laid back and tries to understand Whitney's point of view. Whitney's friends add to the pressure on Whitney. She must have the right boyfriend to suit them even though Whitney is starting to have feelings for someone they deem less than stellar. She is so confused at this point. Taylor, her unpopular tutor, starts to make Whitney question her priorities. He makes her look at and want things that her mother and friends do not want. This adds pressure to Whitney. What path does she want? Why is she trying so hard to push some paths away? Will she be able to find her way? With the help of some well respected people and God's nudges, Whitney begins to find the path that she feels is best. She begins to see new opportunities with different eyes.

    This is a great series for young adult girls and even guys who may be struggling to find their own way in life. The teenage years can be full of pressures that make one feel like you need to take only one path. However, as Whitney discovers, God places opportunities in your life for a reason. Don't just push things aside because someone is expecting you to. You need to find your own way despite what others say.

    Although Im miles past my young adult years, it was much simpler than I expected to re-connect with my teenage thoughts and feelings I have a theory that Amy Clipston writes such amazing books that she makes it easier to connect because she writes it just as I remember it to be.

    Dont let the cover fool you Whitney stays and shows everyone that she knows what she wants and shes willing to do what it takes to get it.

    Without giving away too much (hopefully), I could so identify with Whitney when she lies to cover up a truth that she knows will just upset everyone else. She tries to convince herself it really isnt much of a lie, but she knows better. And when the truth comes out, lots of people end up hurt including Whitney!

    Fortunately, she is learning to depend on God through prayer, as well as being strong enough to face her family and friends with the truth and sincere apologies.

    Amy is an amazing writer!

    Ive been told not to expect any other YA novels after Miles From Nowhere is published, but Im hoping in the years to come that Amy will be able to publish more YA novels teenagers need to read and hear her sage advice, hidden inside her novels.

    Happy Reading!!!

    Interesting but Frustrating Story.

    I enjoyed this story written for teens, but also found it frustrating because Whitney's mom drove me crazy. She was incredibly controlling, telling her eighteen-year-old daughter everything from what to wear to what to eat and who to be friends with. While I don't agree with how Whitney treated her mom, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. I think her mom should have given Taylor a chance and not been so shallow, but I could see how she would think he was behind Whitney's attitude shift. It would also worry me if a girl seemed to dump her friends and change; I would wonder if the guy wasn't being controlling. I really liked how Whitney started to question what she wanted out of life and stood up to her friends who weren't treating Taylor right. The romance was cute, but I'm glad it started as friendship and that they got to know each other well. I really appreciated the strong faith element, with an emphasis on the importance of prayer, knowing God is always with you, and that lying is never the way to go. I felt the ending wrapped up a bit too neatly as it seemed her mom became understanding all of a sudden, even though Whitney really blew it. This works well as a stand-alone, but her cousin Emily is featured prominently and a prior book was about her, which I haven't read. Overall, this story has a good message and an interesting story. I think teenage girls would like this book!

    I received a free ARC from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.

    Enjoyable Read!

    As I head towards the finishing high-school and getting closer to college stage, this book really seems to resonate with me. Amy Clipston took your average perfect cheerleading teen with the privileged lifestyle and overbearing parents and transformed it to a real life story.

    Whitney is a very hard character to describe. She has good intentions, likable, naive, and a tad bit spoiled. At times you applauded her for her change in character and other times you wondered what is going on with her.

    Throughout this story I kept on wondering if this family really had a relationship with Jesus would they act this way. Would the mother be so overbearing and judgmental? Would Whitney be friends with who she was with, lie to her mother, and feel so overwhelmed. Whitney did pray in the book, but if she had a true relationship with the Lord she could have avoided so much hurt.

    Though the man focus of the story was finding your identity many other lessons are also presented. The importance of truth, handling

    betrayal, good friendships, and getting closer to the Lord.

    I really enjoyed the applicable plot, the overall message of the importance of finding your identity, and the many sub-messages. It is an easy to follow story that hopefully will help to draw you closer to your parents, friends, and most importantly God.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book, from Zondervan, in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.

    Whitney is the captain of the cheerleaders, Honor Roll, always striving to be the best at what she does. She teaches cheerleading, tutors and then when her mother finds out that she made a D in calculus she hires Whitney a tutor. How embarrassing. As she becomes acquainted with her tutor Taylor, they strike sparks due to misunderstanding the other. As their friendship grows she finds herself changing but family doesn't recognize that she is. She quits the cheerleading squad, her boyfriend breaks up with her on Valentine's Day after giving her a cheap box of chocolate. Then when he sees her with Taylor he tries to get her back.

    This is about a teenage girl beginning to grow up, dealing with the pressures of being almost an adult, but not quite. Whitney begins to question her life and values, relies more on her faith and finds new friends, renewing old friendships and just being a typical teen. This is a book more for young adults and teens. The author recognizes the issues that teens deal with and she shows how one girl deals with the issues of growing up.

    I received this book through and the author to read, review and give my honest opinion. Amy Clipston is an author I've read several of her books. This one was good (even though I'm a grandmother to boys) and I would highly recommend it to young adults and teens. I've read Amy's books about the Amish and she is a favorite author.
