I was offered an ARC of this book.

This is more like a 3.5 rating.

There is much to like in this quick read. The plot is solid, as are the characters. I could really believe Dawn going off on a motorcycle. The descriptions of the trip brought back fond memories of my own trip up Highway One.

I struggled a bit to believe in the dialogue. I've worked a lot with teenagers, and both the vocabulary and the emotional insight shown by the teenagers feels a bit too formal and polished for people this age
