Rosie never ceased to make me laugh; her story was hilarious. I loved every aspect of the book, though I agree it was a tad unrealistic. I feel like many people have suppressed rage in relationships, and though they do not take as extreme measures as Rosie, sometimes we all want to scream.

The book was good, but both the plot and the characters seemed a little stereotypical and unrelatable. OK read, but not if you're looking for something really good. Still cute, though.

The first few chapters were hilarious and the idea of a road trip was great. I just feel that the main character isn't able to have proper relationships with anybody, and is not relatable at all.

After Rosie accidentally sets fire to her ex’s car, her parents send her on a road trip with a trusted family friend and his two cronies to straighten her out. Along the way she works through her anger and grief and falls in love again. A lighthearted, funny book—but nothing spectacular, ubiquitously romantic, and honestly the premise is unrealistic. It was fun to read, but I’d hesitate to call it quality.
