    So much more than I expected

    I don’t know exactly what I expected when I began Detour, but it certainly wasn’t what I got. This book was so much better than I ever imagined. Though the blurb hints at an intense hurt/comfort story, the cover conveys a light-hearted fun vibe, and I didn’t know if I should expect more fun or more angst. I also hadn’t read anything by either author before, so I definitely wasn’t expecting to fall into a gripping story with fantastically interesting characters facing their personal demons and painful pasts. Somehow the authors managed to balance that pain and tragedy with a fun lightness laced in puns and youthful humor making this an unexpected addition to my must-reads of 2018. Detour details two new adults on a healing cross-country journey. There are many pockets of wisdom or self-realizations that will speak to all readers’ hearts, but what struck me most was Ethan and Nick’s growth during their road trip. I appreciated the honest explorations of their grief and guilt, and liked that the characters were personable and relatable, while also being believable as young men. I so enjoyed watching these two find each other and themselves. As the book closed, I couldn’t help but think “this can’t be the end”, not because it was left unfinished or I had too many unanswered questions. Rather, I was just sad to let go of Nick and Ethan. Detour definitely will stick with me and as it’s the first in a series, I absolutely can’t wait for more. If you at all enjoy books about personal journeys and growth, don’t hesitate to grab this title. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
