Long Road Full Speed Ahead by Emily Walker Review

cover

Synopsis 

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.

Blurb

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 was a great and addicting read.  (No pun intended)  From page one I was quickly pulled into the crazy life of Grace.  It was almost as if I was reading a real life journal as I followed along in Grace’s life.  I felt as though I was sitting on the sidelines watching Grace struggle through her abusive relationship and as she bounced from one addiction to the next.

The emotions felt throughout this story are real and raw.  Walker did a fabulous job of capturing something that most authors would be scared to write about.  Walker bravely dove into the darker side of life and I believe that this is a book that a lot of women could relate to.  This is a book that can make you take a step back and evaluate and appreciate what you have in your life.

I fell in love with Grace’s character.  I felt for her, and rooted for her when things got tough.  I found it incredibly easy to hate Grayson and I was hoping the best for Miranda.

The ending snuck up on me.  It wasn’t really what I was expecting but it was definitely realistic.

I would definitely recommend this book for people over the age of 18.  The subject matter is not appropriate for the younger crowd, in my opinion.

Emily Walker has definitely gained a new fan.  I will be following along and look forward to reading more of her work as it becomes available!
