This book is a wonderful story of family, friends, and life's ups and downs!

Once again Kristin Hannah knocks out of the park! I really liked this book and it was the perfect read for a poolside vacation! ( )

Alexa (Lexi) has been shunted around to various foster homes most of her young life. At the start of high school, she is brought to her Great Aunt Eva to raise. Eva enrolls her in the best high school in the area where she meets the Farraday twins, Mia and Zach, and their parents, Jude and Miles. Lexi immediately feels a connection to the handsome Zach and becomes friends with Mia, a girl who has few friends. Jude is a very controlling parent but welcomes Lexi into her family. Eventually, the stresses of their senior year in high school with applying to colleges and partying changes all their lives forever. ( )

I do not recommend reading this is you have lost a young member of your family to a car accident caused by drunken driving.
For as sad and tragic as the book was, the ending was a little too perfect. ( )

It was a mistake. A misjudgment. A collision between bulletproof teens, first-love, alcohol, and poor choices. And it left a family shattered, with a woman who had made her children the center of her world trying to go forward while still shackled to a flesh-and-blood reminder of what she had lost.

Hannah does a good job here in keeping this out of soap-opera territory with sharp character development, but it’s a close shave. Young love is set on what is obviously going to be a collision course with cold, hard reality, and there’s buckets of angst to go around. The teens’ mom is herself the child of an emotionally absent parent, and she has made it her life’s work to nurture and protect her golden twins. She’s already dealing with separation anxiety engendered by their upcoming departure for college when her children’s attachment to a hard-luck case complicates everything in ways that are pretty well predictable.

There’s some nice imagery here involving a garden and, always, that underlying thread of mothers and children and how close is too close, how far is too far, and how can one overcome that which cannot be endured. ( )

Good for listening to abridged version. Done realistically in the way a family might react. The mother was a little bit over the top near the ending. ( )

An epic tale of love, friendship, loss and forgiveness.

Once I finished sobbing (and we're talking UGLY cry), I was able to look at Night Road and realize just how wonderful this book truly was.

I am having such a hard time writing the review for this book because it evoked so much emotion in me - sad, angry, happy, frustrated - that I don't know if I can find the appropriate words. How do you tell someone about a book that, literally, took your breath away? Having read Winter Garden and Firefly Lane, I thought I knew what I was in for but this one... nothing could prepare me for the ride I was about to have.

As the characters lives become intertwined, and the story more developed, you can see the amazing gift and talent that Kristin Hannah has. Through her writing, I became a classmate of Lexi, Mia and Zach. I could feel every emotion that I had back then, resurfacing. Their journey through high school becomes like that of a memory, something you have done and aren't just reading about.

Overall, this is a book that I am and will be thinking about for a long time to come. Whether you are a mother, a sister or a friends, Night Road is a story that anyone can relate to. A definite MUST-read!!
 
A flawed but never dull drama.

Even readers who like their melodrama thick will have problems as Hannah pushes credibility to the breaking point, and more than once.

I cannot deny that I was a helicopter mom. I went to every class gathering, party, and field trip, until my son begged me to please, please, stay at home. Now that he is grown and a college graduate, I can look back on our shared high school years with the wisdom that comes from distance. His senior year was without a doubt one of the most stressful years of my life, as well as one of the most rewarding. When I think back on it - and those memories were the inspiration for this novel - I remember so many of the highs and the lows. Mostly I think how lucky I was to live in a tight-knit, caring community where we supported one another. So, here's to my son, Tucker, and all of the kids who streamed through our house, lighting it up with their laughter, Ryan, Kris, Erik, Gabe, Andy, Marci, Whitney, Willie, Lauren, Angela, and Anna, just to name a few. And to the other moms: I honestly don't know how I would have survived without you. Thanks for always being there, for knowing when to lend a hand, when to offer a margarita, and when to tell me a hard truth. To Julie, Andy, Jill, Megan, Ann, and Barbara. Last, but certainly not least, thanks to my husband, Ben, who was always by my side, letting me know in a thousand ways that in parenting, as in everything else, we ere a team. Thanks to you all.
