Title: Where The Road Takes Me
Author: Jay McLean
Published by: Skyscape, February 10, 2015
You know how sometimes you can tell that something is about to happen, even though there are no physical signs? Like when the hair on the back of your neck stands up, or your palms begin to sweat, or butterflies form in your stomach?
What I was surrounded by was an uncertain future. One in which I couldn’t muster the courage to have hopes and dreams. Because I knew they were unattainable. That part-I could live with.
But what I hated about the uncertainty was my inability to form meaningful relationships.
I was browsing Amazon and saw this cover and I had to know what it was about. It sounds to me like there is something wrong with our main character, probably some illness, I’m guessing. It sounds really interesting and I already love the writing.
