Book Description

17 Jun 2011

Lexi and Mia are inseparable from the moment they start high school. Different in so many ways – Lexi is an orphan and lives with her aunt on a trailer park, while Mia is a golden girl blessed with a loving family, and a beautiful home. Yet they recognize something in each other which sets them apart from the crowd, and Mia comes to rely heavily on Lexi’s steadfast friendship.

Mia’s beloved, and incredibly good-looking, twin brother Zach, finds life much less complicated than his sister. Jude thought she’d never have to worry about her son, that he’d always sail through life easily achieving whatever he, and his family, wanted and expected – but then he fell in love.

The summer they graduated is a time they will always remember, and one they could never forget. It is a summer of love, best friends, shared confidences and promises. Then one moment one night changes them all forever. As hearts are broken, loyalties challenged and hopes dashed, the time has come to leave childhood behind and learn to face the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars emotional rollercoaster of a read 14 July 2011
Format:Paperback
I read this as part of the channel 4 TV Book Club programme. I'm not sure it's something I would normally have chosen from the blurb on the back, but I'm so glad I did and would definitely recommend. Exploring themes of friendship, love, trust, loss, pain, fear, loneliness, isolation, forgiveness - and more - thus a total emotional rollercoaster - spent a lot of the time with tears streaming down my face and ended up feeling totally wrung out! Haven't written a book review before but felt compelled to encourage others to read this story - when a novel leaves you emotionally raw it's too good to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and lovely story 11 July 2011
By JM VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the story of three young friends: Lexi, an orphan, who after years in foster care between stints with her now deceased drug addict mother, lives in a trailer park with her great aunt, and twins Mia and Zach, golden children who come from a loving family and live in a state of the art modern home with every comfort. Against the odds they become the best of friends, and Lexi is welcomed into the heart of the twins' family, she is loved by their mother Jude, also a main player in this wonderful novel.
But one night something terrible happens that shatters everything. Lives are ruined, families torn apart. The consequences of that night carry repercussions for years afterwards, and this is the best part of the book for me. The first half is good, the second half is totally gripping and I really didn't want to put it down.
The characterisation is excellent, Lexi is a wonderful strong girl, and Jude, though some of her actions are not great, is someone I really felt for, I can't say much more as it would give away the plot, I would just add that who knows how any of us would behave until we have found ourselves in these situations, and I would hope never to do so.
I really enjoyed this book, it's engrossing, sad, and very readable, and I highly recommend it. I was desperate to finish it today, but now gutted that I have done.

3.0 out of 5 stars mixed feelings 30 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
first warning about this book: back cover copy says it "speaks to women everywhere about the things that matter most". Erckle. Everyday sexism much?

this is a well written page turner, but I was a bit puzzled why I kept turning the pages! It's well observed but it is loaded with cliches, and some of the characters are so weak, it makes me wince. I don't know any twins; is that level of co-dependence normal? As for Jude, yes, sadly I do know mothers who are that completely obsessed with the lives of their kids, and frankly I liked her detached, icy mother better (until we were told the "reason" Jude's mum is the way she is, which was a shame. I would have been quite happy for her to just be that way naturally).

The book is loaded with "mom" stereotypes generally. There is certainly a football mom community out there who would probably relate to every word, but I winced, because happily, I live in a very different world and mums actually have lives!!

I like Jodi Picoult's work, but the sentimental teenager world portrayed here made me cringe; JP seems to get away with this more. Too much Disney added here maybe? I think it was good writing and a general "what happens next" that kept this going, but I continued why I continued reading.

Other oddities in the book - there were a few predictable things that took so long to happen, by the time they did happen, it became unbelievable because they should have happened ages ago. Also, when Lexi really fell in a hole, we were not given the chance to see either the fall or how she dug herself out of that hole, which was a pity as it may have been the most interesting bit of the book.

The thing I can't deny is that the characters were well drawn and I did keep turning the pages. If you want an easy read, try it; but be prepared for the kind of teenagery schmaltz that would make you laugh if someone said it to you in real life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book description does not do it justice! 16 July 2011
By Stantum
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not my preferred genre of book to read, but I am trying all the books that are part of the TV Book Club, and I am so pleased that I gave it a go.
Night Road leads you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions; sadness, laughter, morality, happiness, etc.

The book is based around a terrible event that rips apart the lives of all the characters. It really made me think about how I would react if I ever found myself in the same situation.

For me the highlight of the book is that I could easily relate to the characters and imagine myself in their position. The beginning half of the book I loved, it is funny in parts, genuine and really grips you. I found myself wanting to read more and more, and actually finished it in a day, sadly, as I would have liked to keep going.

The book description I find does not do it justice and had I stumbled across this without any recommendation, I would probably never have bought it. Its a great book that would be an excellent summer read, or a great Sunday snuggled on the sofa book. I would definately recommend this to family or friends, its really worth giving it a go.
