Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she's leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill.
A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

Kari Rose and her two sisters are visiting their grandmother during spring break when their grandmother decided at 3AM to take a long trip to visit family. Even though the girls know they should not go, they can not convince Granny and they are forced to go with her. Kari's younger sister is constantly mouthing off to Granny, the old Cadillac breaks down and then Granny can no longer drive so 15 year old Kari has to take over. While Kari is driving, they drive into a snowstorm and have to sit through a road closure for the night. When they are able to get back on the road, a second blizzard hits and Kari pulls off the road and follows a snow plow. They find themselves at an abandoned restaurant and lodge to wait out the storm. Kari goes through the kitchen and finds food to make and they are able to stay warm by the fireplace. While staying at the lodge the family pull together to survive. Kari's younger sister apologizes for the way she talks to others. I enjoyed reading this book. There were several parts of the book that were very funny. But for the most part I just wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. There is a little bit of romance in the story with Kari and the young man at a hotel as well. The part I enjoyed most was while they were at the lodge. The love they showed to each other and how they took care of Granny was enjoyable to read. Any one who enjoys reading adventure stories will enjoy this book. It is a good clean book that could be enjoyed by youth and adults alike. There are some parts of the book where the better proof reading could have been used but it did not disrupt the story. I received a copy of this book from the author and Book Club Network. I have written an honest review.
This is a very interesting book. It is not at all your typical romance or mystery. A little of both but really, neither one. It is just a fun, clean, and God honoring novel. The main characters are well developed, the sub-characters are easy to understand also. The plot flows well and keeps your interest. As you know, grammar is important to me. This book was by no means error free and the further into the book, especially the last quarter, the more errors. Only a couple were the type that made you re-read to understand. Most were missing word errors. A few were punctuation. These errors would not keep me from recommending this book. I requested a copy of this book to review and did this of my own free will.
