Publisher's Summary

Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.

It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago. What is supposed to be a fun family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day-old beard clippings. Paul's know-it-all attitude and Porter's devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven-day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980s RV.

    "Great book, must read!!!"

    This book was way better than I was expecting! I listened to it at work and had to control myself from laughing out loud and crying as well. I would definitely recommend this book, but keep in mind it's not for young readers!

    "Bwahahaha"

    Loved it. Laughed out loud. If you've ever had a sibling, the guy next door, and a funny but scary dad you'll identify. If you haven t now you will know. And yes it really is like this. Well for some of us.
    This is my #1 favorite romantic comedy. Hands down! Laughter, sex, road trip who needs more!!

    "Laugh out Loud FUNNY!!"
    Would you listen to The Mother Road again? Why?

    Yes...It was funny and entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Porter, Marley's brother. The way he would fight with his sister or just give her a hard time was enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Marley almost drank the pee bottles that Porter and his father filled on the way to get Marley.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was laughing so hard while listening to it at work they think I am going nuts.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a MUST listen! I will read/listen to this one again.
