Sisters Leo and Paris Hollings have always been close. Paris has told Leo about all her secrets and Leo has taken Paris out for pie at The Heartbreak Hotel at the crack of dawn more times than she can count. That’s where they are, at the Heartbreak, when Leo meets Max, and Paris disappears. Leo feels empty inside; why did her sister leave her there with a mysterious boy? Soon Max and Leo are on the road, driving around Vegas on a messed-up scavenger hunt to find her sister. But is it really only just a scavenger hunt, or is there a deeper meaning to it? In this unique contemporary road trip novel with a twist, Max and Leo are led around Vegas searching for Paris, and possibly themselves in the process.
Thoughts: I had so much fun joining in on this road trip/scavenger hunt with Leo and Max. The setting was very vivid in this story; I loved being in Vegas for a little bit, experiencing the lights and the casinos and everything. it played out perfectly like a movie in my head, and now I want to go for real. It was a fun ride, but then the ending came so abruptly and it was over before I could take it all in. The ending didn’t really satisfy me, but it sure did surprise me. I felt like it could have been a little more fleshed out and I feel it just came out of nowhere. As much as I loved this book, I would’ve liked the ending to wrap up a little better, but it didn’t make the book less enjoyable. I LOVE this cover and the underneath embossing SO MUCH. You guys, LOOK.
It goes with the book and ever since seeing the cover I knew I needed to read it. Funny, they say, don’t judge a book by it’s cover. But it ALWAYS WORKS. So, if you are looking for a contemp that addresses some difficult issues and takes you on a wild ride, go pick up Finding Paris!
