When Kevin finds Sarah stranded by the side of the road, he’s more than willing to give her a ride. Young, beautiful and distraught—she’s everything a single guy could ask for in a girl. What he doesn’t know is that she already has a guy: an abusive, drunken boyfriend who left her there in a fit of rage. And when that boyfriend comes back and finds Sarah missing, a simple ride will turn deadly.
Like Josh Gaylord and Daniel Kraus before him, author Erik Therme explores the angst of disconnected youth in his enthralling and powerful Roam. Therme’s darkly tinged novel is an unforgettable tale of three errant souls brutalized by life’s cruel circumstances, and a remarkable night of discovery and violence that will change them forever.
Before I share my review I just want to say that I love the cover for this book!
I thought that this was a well written story and I really enjoyed the plot as it developed. I will admit at the outset I was a little confused as the stories didn’t really seem to relate but the author pulled the different plot strands together and I thought that the ending was excellent and his writing style is always very enjoyable.
This for me was almost a coming of age story but the main character Sarah has just turned 21 so she is slightly out of that age range but I think it would really appeal to young adults too.
It is 4 stars from me for this on, I really enjoyed the plot and thought that the pace of the book was spot on, highly recommended!
