Don’t Stop Now by Julie Halpern

 

95783312 people, Josh, and Lillian, just graduated high school. They plan to do nothing the summer. But, a shy girl at their school, Penny, who becomes friends with Lillian, is kidnapped/ or did she kidnapped herself? So, Lillian and Josh decide to go on one last trip before college and go on a road trip all around USA to find her, using only a car without A/C and Josh’s rich dad’s money. This book is kind-of funny book with a dark insight on Penny’s thoughts. It is mostly “intense” because you never know what is going to happen, or where they will go next, and where they can find Penny. I agree with the author’s opinion about making Lillian and Josh go find Penny because even though they aren’t good friends, Lillian is Penny’s “acquaintance” because of the way Penny follows Lillian everywhere. One question this book can raise up is that will Josh and Lillian ever meet again after the trip and Lillian goes to college. I really liked the book because it was really descriptive and explained each part of their road trip, where they stayed, ate, went to see, hike, visit, etc. Also, at the end of each chapter, it gives a page about Penny’s (The girl who is kidnapped) thoughts and feelings. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes humor, some romance, and one big mystery that gets solved at the end. In all, this was a really good book.

I really liked the cover and I picked it up because the book is about a road trip, adventure, and most importantly, kidnapping. I kept reading because it went on about the road trip described all the places Lillian and Josh went, and where they stayed/ ate. It was nice to learn about new places across USA. Also, I kept reading because I wanted to know where Penny was and why she is/gets kidnapped. I would give this to anyone who likes comedy, a bit of romance, and mystery.
