I was worried that I would be disappointed by this book since Kristin Hannah is not generally so dark. But she did not disappoint.

Night Road is the story of a young girl who has spent her life in foster care until she turns 14. She meets twins her age, they befriend each other thru high school until one terrible night.
The narration is excellent and drew me into the story. It's one I'll listen to again, I'm sure. Well worth a credit-aimed at teens and young women this is a heart rending novel

I highly recommend this book and have spoken to most of my friends about it already. This book had me so engrossed in the story that I broke into tears on a few different occasions. At one point, my husband had called and I was so caught up in the book that I was crying to him about a chapter. That has never happened before. Kristin Hannah never disappoints but she outdid herself with this one.
When one of the characters was giving birth I cried for her. I held my breathe as I listened to the details. My heart ached for her. I don't remember ever being so emotionally involved with a book.
She has a great voice and it took me right into the story.
I don't know the answer to that.
It was a beautiful book that exposed you to so many raw emotions. As sad as it was, I loved reading it. I went through the emotions with the characters and so few books do that for the reader.
AN excellent and thought provoking story, that deeply connects with the reader's heart. An excellent narrator that enables the book to pack a double punch. Cried through much of it, but loved it!
I have come to love Kristin Hannah as an author. The first book of hers I read was "The Nightingale," and I was an instant fan. Now I can't get enough of her books. This is a story of friendship, loss, and redemption that will have you anticipating the next chapter yet not wanting it to end. Many a life lesson can be learned from this beautiful book!
I didn't realize initially that there was a sad PTT to this story and was taken aback when a sweet college romance turned into a dark novel for a part of the book, just want to make sure others are aware. Wonderful story line and book
I am thrilled that I came across this author/story...It is amazing, well written and Very touching...I plan to share this with many friends and I am sure they will enjoy just as much...it is both 💔 and yet comforting and Real...I say EXCELLENT job by Author & Narrator...
Our lives are based on a series of decisions that we make as we grow. Most of the time they are simple and immediate. Other times it's not as clear and you have to meditate. And then there are times when it's shades of grey. What is right and what is wrong? It's what shapes us into individuals.
When Lexi decides to sit next to Mia in the cafeteria, they instantly become best friends. Years pass and the bond grows between them. Then Zack and Lexi fall in love and the three of them become inseparable. But as graduation looms closer, it becomes clear that Lexi doesn't have the opportunities that the twins have. Will this be the thing that comes between the trio?
The three of them fumble through the next few weeks coming to terms with what college will mean to them. With one bad decision it all comes to a screeching halt and a tragedy that will alter many lives. Here, we come to those shades of grey. What is the right decision? What atonement can you give to be forgiven by yourself and others? Two families tied together in friendship are torn apart in grief.
I loved this book! It was an emotional wrecking ball but I felt everything right along with these people. Happiness, guilt, anger, joy, love and forgiveness. It's a book that makes you look at the decisions you've made and will make in your life. To truly consider what the outcome of those decisions will be. Night Road will stay with me for a very long time.
