Long Road Full Speed Ahead Review and Promo Release

Title: Long Road Full Speed Ahead
Author: Emily Walker
Genre: Adult Fiction/Drama
Pages: 252







The Blurb:  Grace finds herself with a toxic friend and a brand new hobby
when she discovers meth. She had a promising future before Grayson
came into the picture. A wolf in sheep's clothing he soon shows his
true colors and they are painted with black and blue. The drugs cause
more problems than they fix, but lost in the intoxicating world of
numbness she must find herself through abuse, addiction, and abortion.
Will she let the drugs take her out of the world, and be forever numb,
or will an unlikely love pull her out and make her feel again?

My Review: Wow powerful and gripping! This is one book that even though it is not a true story it has all the elements for being able to relate to some thing in the story. Long Road Full Speed Ahead  reaches out and grabs a hold of and takes you on one heck of a wild ride. Emily Walker pulls you into this book and makes you feel as though you are one with the book.
The moment you meet Grace you feel connected to her in someway you can relate to her life.As you go through Grace's life of drugs, abusive relationships, and alcohol induced reality you start wondering how does she continue down this path. I found myself wanting to fight for her, cry out at her to wake up and see the dangerous void she was pulling herself through. This was a very powerful and riveting story for me that hit home a little to close. I as mom of two daughters about the same age just wanted to go hold them and plead with them to not to follow along this same path. As I realized how easily it could happen. I can honestly say that Long Road Full Speed Ahead completely touched my heart I was so moved by this story that I can only say that I hope there might be a second book. I will not forget this story anytime soon.
4/5
