**Review **: The Road to You By Marilyn Brant

Summary :
Sometimes the only road to the truth...is one you’ve never taken.

Until I found Gideon’s journal in the tool shed — locked in the cedar box where I’d once hidden my old diary — I’d been led to believe my brother was dead. But the contents of his journal changed all that.

The Road to Discovery...
Two years ago, Aurora Gray’s world turned upside down when her big brother Gideon and his best friend Jeremy disappeared. Now, during the summer of her 18th birthday, she unexpectedly finds her brother’s journal and sees that it’s been written in again. Recently. By him. 

The Road to Danger...
There are secret messages coded within the journal’s pages. Aurora, who’s unusually perceptive and a natural puzzle solver, is hell bent on following where they lead, no matter what the cost. She confides in the only person she feels can help her interpret the clues: Donovan McCafferty, Jeremy’s older brother and a guy she’s always been drawn to — even against her better judgment. 

The Road to You...
Reluctantly, Donovan agrees to go with her and, together, they set out on a road trip of discovery and danger, hoping to find their lost brothers and the answers to questions they’ve never dared to ask aloud.

In that expectant space between silence and melody, our trip began...

Review :
I  have to say, that once I started this book, I couldn't seem to put it down. I found myself trying to figure out what the clues were and what they meant. I truly enjoyed reading this well written book and I'm sure you will too.Aurora, our heroine, is pulled into the mystery of what happened to her brother, Gideon, and his best friend, Jeremy. She is very good at solving puzzles, but needs help and it comes in the form of Donovan. She has always had a thing for Donovan. Together they follow the trail of “breadcrumbs” Aurora finds in her brother’s journal.The book keeps you wondering right up to the end about where the brothers/best friends are. The relationship between Aurora and Donovan is complex and heartwarming. It renews your hope in justice, which has suffered several blows throughout the book. 

I would recommend this to everyone and know they will enjoy the journey.The Road to You is a satisfying YA/NA mystery with a touch of romance.
