really liked it

More a 3.5, but leaning towards 4.

I enjoyed this quite a bit, because it didn't feel like the standard roadtrip book with lots of funny / weird things happening. They did happen, but weren't the focus. Addie and her Ex Dylan are thrown together in a car (with two more friends) on way to a wedding in Scotland and their story and their breakup are told through flashbacks. There were a few surprises, some uncomfortable truths, some darker stories as well and the funny roadtrip events provided some levity. I could have done without the Rodney plot, as funny as it was in the beginning, it ended a bit silly. But all in all, this book was worth spending my Saturday with.

Add a messed-up male sidekick and a badass sister and the roadtrip gets even more interesting"
