Eyes on the Road by Kerri Davidson and Mark Gelinas
YA Contemporary, 2021 by Kerri Davidson Books, 263 Pages
What I Didn’t Like:
- Some scenes I would’ve liked to see. We fast forward through some things that I would’ve wanted added, but overall I get why they weren’t included.
- Teens making poor choices. Not a deal breaker for me as I think it’s realistic. But if you’re not a fan of YA books where teens do stupid questionable things it might bother you. Call it a content warning.
What I Did Like:
- Great characters! I adored Morgan and Josh. They’re chemistry, their personalities, and their banter worked.
- The setting is perfect. This story wouldn’t work in today’s world of cell phones and GPS. It absolutely had to be set in the 90s. I questioned whether that was going to work (I worried today’s teens won’t relate) but it’s well balanced so that wasn’t an issue.
- Relatable. The message here is about learning who you are and what’s important. That’s a relatable message and it’s learned in a great way.
Who Should Read This One:
- Fans of contemporary coming-of-age slice-of-life style books will adore this one. It’s just well written and amazing. I already ordered book 2!
- YA romance fans … hear me out. If you like slow burn romance with good banter, these characters are lovable and adorable.
