Last Train Home ( The Home Series:Book One )
By Megan Nugen Isbell
Last train home is the first book, in the Home series. And let me tell ya, I’m hooked!! This is my first time reading a book by Megan. But it definitely won’t be my last either!!
I got sucked into this emotional roller coaster of a book, from the very beginning. I truly couldn’t put it down for the life of me. It truly brought me back to my high school days.
Megan has such a phenomenal way of connecting you to the characters. You feel everything they are going through. Every. Single. Emotion. It’s quite amazing actually!! To feel such a connection to a bunch of fictional characters… it’s wonderful!!
Riley Regas is your everyday, normal seventeen year old girl. She is getting ready to start her senior year of high school,in her hometown Boston. Until her mom drops a huge bomb on her …. they’re moving to Carver, Kansas. Her mother’s hometown,where she grew up and her family is currently living there.
To say Riley isn’t pleased is quite the understatement of the year! She is angry, bitter and downright mean to her mom.
But she grows to like the school and her amazing group of friends Holly,Mandy,Laura,Brandon and Jesse. Together they make some great memories and have a great time.
Just when Riley thinks things are going wonderfully, a single bad decision changes it all. She has to face some difficult choices. And during this difficult time, she finds out who her friends are and who matters the most in her life.
High school can be the best four years of your teenage life. But it also brings a lot of different emotions and feelings. I honestly think this book ( and series ) conveyed it perfectly. We have all been there during our high school days. You understand what the characters are feeling.
I truly love his series ( and characters. ) I can not wait to see what the second book has in store for me. Outstanding job Megan!!
