Growing up in the fast lane… 

Sixteen year old Telluride Marshall loves her sex kitten mother, but the woman is a thug magnet. Kittie's love affairs always end the same—packing only what they can carry for a middle of the night escape. On the road once again, Tellie tries to warn her mom about the dangers they'll face in the stolen hot rod with thousands of dollars belonging to Kittie's abusive ex. But while Tellie wants to shape a different kind of life, all Kittie wants is another man. The question becomes, who does the road belong to when you're racing down the interstate in a red hot sports car?

My Review: 

I picked this book up on a break from reading a text book in prep for an exam knowing it was a novella and would be a short read for me.  A certain sentence in the book pretty much summed up my feelings for this book.  "All I saw was an adult who behaved like a dumb child, a silly woman who should have been in the passenger seat of her life, certainly not the driver's seat of mine." This novella follows the story of a 16 year old dealing with many tough choices and the effects of many bad decisions made on her irresponsible mothers part.  Although the summary of the book drew me in I have to admit once reading it had a hard time getting into it.  Having been lucky to have such a great mother and hoping I am one myself it was hard to enjoy the book feeling that the child was so better off without a mother then with what she had.  Being a parent is such a huge responsibility and all I could feel was upset with this mother and sorry for Telluride.

Views expressed are those of Two Children and a Migraine and have not been influenced in anyway.  A book was supplied for review purposes only and no compensation was received for this post.
