Overview

Roadside Assistance by Amy Clipston

A very bumpy ride. Emily Curtis is used to dealing with her problems while under the hood of an old Chevy, but when her mom dies, Emily’s world seems shaken beyond repair. Driven from home by hospital bills they can’t pay, Emily and her dad move in with his wealthy sister, who intends to make her niece more feminine—in other words, just like Whitney, Emily’s perfect cousin. But when Emily hears the engine of a 1970 Dodge Challenger, and sees the cute gearhead, Zander, next door, things seem to be looking up. But even working alongside Zander can’t completely fix the hole in Emily’s life. Ever since her mom died, Emily hasn’t been able to pray, and no one—not even Zander—seems to understand. But sometimes the help you need can come from the person you least expect.

I thought this book was amazing and I wish it could've continued. I loved how Amy Clipston made most of it about how Emily had lost her faith in God. She couldn't talk to him and thought he forgot about her. I also liked how tom-boyish Emily was. I like reading books with girls as tom-boyish as I am. It was an awesome book.

This book is too good to describe in words. This book is the best. I have never ever read a book like this in my whole entire life! You have not lived until you read this book. It's perfect and flawless. I highly recommended this book to everyone.

I got right into this book. It's not the normal book and story line I like to read and even though this is a book targeted to Young Adults I really got into this book! This book starts off with Emily and her dad heading to Emily's dad's sisters house after loosing everything due to her mom having cancer. The story goes from there on Emily transitioning to a new school and a new town, living with relatives and dealing with her mom's death, add in she has lost her faith in god and can't talk to him any more and this story is very inspirational. I will say there were a few spots in the book my eyes watered and toward the end I had tears running down my cheek. Hubby had to think I was nuts. I wanted to finish the book I was so wrapped up in it I stayed up till 1am and one point to finish the book. It was worth it. This book is very inspirational and even got me thinking about some of the verses and thoughts mentioned in the book. I would LOVE to see this book in a movie it would make a great movie and I would be there opening weekend! Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Zondervan Books to conduct my review. All opinions remain my own. Visit The Frugal Navy Wife for more info.

It was an original story and the characters were so easy to relate with. I am looking forwars to more books with these characters.

Personally, I really enjoyed the book. I cried probably three different times while I was reading it. It is a great story about finding your faith after trials. It is well written and the characters are believable human beings who have their strengths and faults, as do we all. Worth a read.

I got this book from the library, and loved it, and than i bought it. So i could read it again. It made me cry, it made me smile, amd it toughed my heart. I loved that it was so real. There could be a girl out there somewhere that this book is their life. If you like this book, try Girl Overboard, or North of Beautiful. They both are really good, real world books.

Roadside Assistance is about lead character, teen tomboy Emily Curtis coping with the recent loss of her mother to cancer and the adjustment her life takes. Emily and her father are forced to move in with her wealthy aunt while they climb from the debt of hospital bills incurred while her mother was sick. On top of all this, Emily is a teen struggling with her religion, other typical highschool drama, and her aunt wanting to make her as girly as her cousin Whitney. (Clipston is interested in making the sequel about Whitney’s story.) In her struggle with religion, Emily feels like God has forsaken her and remember how strong her mother faith was through her sickness. She struggles with the fact that she feels like she can’t talk to God. Instead she starts journal entries to her mother. Some of these entries had me really teary eyed. I loved these entries. However, a lot of the time…I felt like Emily was coming off as a little rotten…but I attribute this to being a typical teenager. I dread to think how horrible I was as a teen. *Shutter!* Throughout the novel, I kept wanting her to just wake up and see the greatness of what was around her. Her father to me was another key character. (I’d like him to have his own book too – if this were to be a series, especially to know more about his talk with the pastor.) I mean, Emily felt like she had NO one to talk to…but he just lost his wife. My husband is my best friend…no idea where I would be or how I would cope if I lost him the way her father lost his wife. I felt like Emily was being a little unfair to him and could have been more understanding…but again, she is a teen. I mean how hard must it be for him to no longer be able to provide for his child the way he once did. He had to give up his auto business and everything he knew too. I like the turn the book took when Emily and her father met Zander (the gearhead neighbor). I also like that this book wasn’t ramming too many technical car facts down your throat. I think there was a good balance and the references weren’t hard to unerstand. Clipston kept them at a minimum with just enough inserted to make the point. All in all, I thought this was really well written and even though it was a young adult book I still enjoyed it. It was a very good, emotional read with a really happy ending. I would like to get more in depth into Whitney, Zander, and Mr. Curtis’ storys. Hopefully, we will see more of that if Clipston decideds to make a sequel. I will definitely be reading the sequel and after seeing all the comments about the Kuaffman Bakery Series, I will be reading those as well! Though my finding this author was somewhat accidental, I am so glad I did. On a personal note, Amy Clipston and I have had short conversations through FB chat a few times and she seems to be a very patient, caring, and giving person. Very down to earth – and I am extremly glad I came to find her by way of book! Keep writing Ms. Clipston – you are doing great and I think those of us who have enjoyed any of your books can say we really appreciate what you do.

Although this book was written for the teen audience, it was still a great read! I hated to put it down. Modern teen girl deals with losing a parent to cancer, and due to medical bills, her family also lost their house and moved in with family members. This is a 9 out of 10 tissue book!

I think this book was very well written! The story was great because it is true to life when it comes to Christian teenagers. Some parts of the book were a little iffy, but all in all it was an awesome book :)
