Eighteen-year-old Angeli doesn't "fit in." She's never been on a single date, and she lives vicariously through an online world of storytelling. With the pressures of choosing a practical future path bearing down, she needs a drastic change. Too old to run away from home, she opts instead to embark on a solo 2-month road trip. But her freedom is tempered by loneliness - and anxiety tests her resolve as she comes face-to-face with her quirky internet friends.

Aside from contracting mono and repeatedly getting herself lost, Angeli's adventure is mired by more unforeseen glitches - like being detained by Canadian authorities, and a near-death experience at the hands of an overzealous amateur wrestler. Her odyssey is complicated further when she unwittingly earns the affections of two young men. One a privileged martial artist; the other a talented techie with a colorful past.

Bewildered by the emotions they stir, Angeli spurns the idea of a doomed long-distance relationship. But she is unprepared for the determination of her hopeful suitors. In the wake of her refusal, one man will betray her, and the other will prove himself worthy of a place in her future.

Angeli sets off in search of a better understanding of herself, the world, and her place in it. What she finds is an impractical love, with the potential to restore her faith in happy endings.

A true story with an unapologetically honest outlook on life, love, faith, and adventure - Once Upon A Road Trip is a coming-of-age memoir.

Angela Blount (perilous1) | 16 comments Alrighty! All of the ebooks have been issued to the addresses I was given. ^_^
Mobi files sometimes have a hard time in transfer, so you may need to check your spam filter.

Happy reading! :)

Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84071 comments Mod
Really sorry guys, I've just been all over the place in the last few days. I've got like 24 hours of KU left, so I'll try and start this after. I feel like I've read nothing.

I agree with you there. It must be amazing though to go through with a trip like that, all by yourself and all. Wish I could if I wasn´t so afraid of everything new, and especially things when you have to do them alone.


Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 29 comments How do I hide something if it is a spoiler?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84071 comments Mod
