Long Road Full Speed Ahead Blog Tour & Giveaway

A young girl struggles with abuse, addiction, and abortion
all while trying to go to school. Somehow she hits rock bottom and
finds an unlikely love story.
 
Grace finds herself with a toxic friend and a brand new hobby
when she discovers meth. She had a promising future before Grayson
came into the picture. A wolf in sheep's clothing, he soon shows his
true colors and they are painted with black and blue. The drugs cause
more problems than they fix, but lost in the intoxicating world of
numbness she must find herself through abuse, addiction, and abortion.
Will she let the drugs take her out of the world, and be forever numb,
or will an unlikely love pull her out and make her feel again?

My Review:

This is not your traditional "happily ever after" ending-type story. The way Emily has written Long Road Full Speed Ahead makes it feel like I'm reading something from personal experience. She really got into Graces' character with all of the experiences from the snooty customer to the effects of drugs and alcohol. Having known people who were into doing drugs and drinkly heavily, this book brought back several memories from my high school days that I could relate with.
 I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it especially to those who are about to go to college as a guide of "what could happen should you choose the wrong road." It is refreshingly different for me and a definite eye opener. I would strongly recommend this book for high schoolers and older.
