first love

Good girl Axi has had it tough growing up – her little sister did young, her mother walked out, and her father crawled into the bottle for comfort. So when she decides to ditch school and run away she takes her best friend, Robinson, along. A tall, attractive bad boy, Robinson decides they’ll start their journey in style and leave town in a stolen car. An exciting journey of new experiences follows, with the two of them making fun memories and meeting interesting people. Then reality hits and the sobering realisation that some things you can’t run fast enough to escape from……..

A really sweet story aimed at teens, I enjoyed this story though I got the ending totally wrong.   Though Robinson seems a little too good to be true, he and Axi are likeable and easy to empathize with. Be warned; the ending is sad and you will need tissues. Lots of them.
