Jodi Picoult fans will love this one
Night Road by Kristin Hannah is a story of parental love, young love, teenage social angst, loss, sacrifice, and most of all; forgiveness. Telling the story of Lexie Baill and the Farraday family, it is not only about true love, but also true friendship. Lexie has been tossed from foster home to foster home all her life. When she moves to the small town of Port George, Washington to live with the great-aunt she never knew existed, her life changes forever. Jude Farraday's whole life has been dedicated to her family, and specifically her two twins Zach and Mia. Painfully shy Mia meets Lexie on their first day of high school and they become best friends. Feeling a kinship with Lexie after her own troubled childhood, Jude soon welcomes Lexie into their lives and treats her as one of their own. Strong bonds develop as the story progresses. Something is also developing between Zach and Lexie, but both fight it out of loyalty to the emotionally fragile Mia. Senior year comes to an end, and one last summer party leads to a sudden and bone chilling tragedy. Everything changes between them all, landing one in jail and the rest emotionally shattered. Full of twists and turns, this is a story that will appeal to all ages, from teens to adults. Fans of Jodi Picoult will love this one. It would be an awesome choice for a book club.
