Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.
I absolutely adore this book. First of all, it’s hilarious. I felt like I was reverted back to my childhood, being that inappropriately immature child that snickered at everything. OK, who am I kidding? I still do that. Let me start off with saying how much I love Marley. She is a breath of fresh air. She’s witty, stubborn, loyal, lovable and a huge spitfire.
” It’s true; I used to kick Paul a lot, especially in the balls. If he’s unable to have kids with Savannah, he can legitimately blame me. As a little sister, watching your brother buckle over in pain from getting hit in the crotch is just too precious. I promise, he deserved every blow to the nuts.”
The journey that the McMann family takes down The Mother Road (Route 66) is hysterical. From a dad who uses presidential names to swear, a brother who is a nerdy intellectual drama queen and a best friend who is a handsome rugged man that likes to instigate things between the siblings, we get one hell of a ride. It’s like everyone on the trip is that crazy uncle that always makes a scene at the family reunion.
Besides my growing lady crush on Marley, I loved the story of her relationship with Porter. It shows both of their vulnerable sides. There was a great mix of bringing out their love story without being overshadowed by the humor.
I can’t wait to see what Meghan writes for us next!
