    Piper Rose, Dani Shapiro and Alexandra Louise De Mille Morrow have been friends from their preschool years They have kept in touch and over the years, as things changed around them, they have been the constants in each other s life Now with each of them heading out to college, they decide to walk the legendary pilgrimage from the French Pyrenees to the Spanish city of Santiago They have been preparing for it for almost a year and feel ready to take it head on Yet what awaits them on the road Piper Rose, Dani Shapiro and Alexandra Louise De Mille Morrow have been friends from their preschool years They have kept in touch and over the years, as things changed around them, they have been the constants in each other s life Now with each of them heading out to college, they decide to walk the legendary pilgrimage from the French Pyrenees to the Spanish city of Santiago They have been preparing for it for almost a year and feel ready to take it head on Yet what awaits them on the road isthan some random pilgrims Will they finish the pilgrimage And how will the experience change them The premise of the story attracted me right from the beginning Most seventeen year olds are worried about fashion, boys and other agonies of being a teenager Yet these three friends chose to take the pilgrimage as a way to celebrate their friendship and the step towards college They knew that it would not be easy and that they would have to rough it out for over a month and yet, they were matured enough to consider it It was so refreshing to see them take this step towards growing up In the end, the pilgrimage brought them closer to themselves and in some ways closer to each other They met a myriad of characters on the way who added to their individual stories and to the story as a whole as well It was fun to see so many different and unique characters in the plot The protagonists, Piper, Dani and Tessa themselves are quite clashing personalities themselves They each come from different backgrounds and have very different dispositions, yet their friendship is what unites them Tessa comes from a privileged background and is a hopeless romantic She loves her grandmother s love story that played out during the WWII and hopes to find that kind of love for herself Dani is a shy bookworm who is also struggling to accept the fact that her mother is having another baby, so late in life through IVF Piper has an outgoing nature that is just a cover for her angst from her broken family It was interesting to see how each of these three go on a journey of self discovery and decide to make changes in their own lives as a result of this trip The author s narration style is pretty good, especially the way she gave us three POVs of Piper, Dani and Tessa where each voice was distinctive The characters were well developed and watching them mature through the book was a beautiful experience.I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to all YA lovers

    This is a fantastic story about friendship, challenges and, of course, travel I must admit that I struggled at the beginning to keep the girls apart and at a few points in the book, but generally it I enjoyed the switching narrators Piper is practical and down to Earth, Dani is an intellectual bookworm and Tessa is a socialite raised to be kind There are many things going on in each of their lives that they re trying to juggle yet the Camino brings them all together.The idea of the Camino in This is a fantastic story about friendship, challenges and, of course, travel I must admit that I struggled at the beginning to keep the girls apart and at a few points in the book, but generally it I enjoyed the switching narrators Piper is practical and down to Earth, Dani is an intellectual bookworm and Tessa is a socialite raised to be kind There are many things going on in each of their lives that they re trying to juggle yet the Camino brings them all together.The idea of the Camino in general appeals to me, but each of the girls brings something good to the story with their different perspectives I particularly like that each of the girls develops throughout the journey and not on a superficial level Each of them has some false starts, but eventually each of them comes to terms with a variety of things in their lives I highly recommend this book as a great option when you re looking for something with a touch of spiritual without being overtly religious.Who should read it Anyone who enjoys a good coming of age novel or is interested in the Camino de Santiago.See all my reviews andat www.ReadingToDistraction.com or Read2Distract

    This was a fantastic book It very much reminds me of the film, The Way The reasons for the three being there are very different from the father s and they are at very different stages in their lives, but both stories are those of emotion, change, growth and enlightenment.The three girls, who are the main characters in this book, start out very self focused, only thinking about their own problems and what they want to change However, as their story progresses, they soon find they are thinking This was a fantastic book It very much reminds me of the film, The Way The reasons for the three being there are very different from the father s and they are at very different stages in their lives, but both stories are those of emotion, change, growth and enlightenment.The three girls, who are the main characters in this book, start out very self focused, only thinking about their own problems and what they want to change However, as their story progresses, they soon find they are thinking about others, helping those around them and focusing very little on themselves It is at this point that they find enlightenment Their paths become obvious and they are able to growth and understand what they want from life.It was fantastic to read along as the three changed, grew and became young ladies They started with a set of personalities and a certain depth, but as the story went on they became deeper in character and their personalities evolved and matured They were great to read about as, though they were friends, they were three very different girls, living exceptionally different lives.We come to see that age does not matter when you are making a life journey Often people think you must be middle aged and needing to revamp in order to need such a journey, but in actuality they are undertaken by people of all ages, and even sometimes young children For each person has their own reason or reasons to start and finish It is almost as if the need to complete the journey comes to them and they must do it, just as these girls felt the call of The Way.I loved this read, the message it had, the emotions I felt whilst reading it and the growth that I saw in the characters It is easy to tell that the author has personal experience of the The Way, as the details of the surroundings are written so well I felt as though I was there and the feelings, emotions and changes that the girls experienced are similar to those I have heard tale of from friends who have gone on they own.I highly recommend this read, especially if you need encouragement, a pick me up or just a boost to kick start your life

    There are moments where you come across a book that leaves you with a sense of peace and serenity Along the Way is that book.Along the Way showcases friendship, love and self worth beautifully I found myself completely sucked into the journeys of each and every character While reading this book, you get to explore the lives of three different people I loved having all three points of views, and getting to know each character separately Their personalities really showed through as the story There are moments where you come across a book that leaves you with a sense of peace and serenity Along the Way is that book.Along the Way showcases friendship, love and self worth beautifully I found myself completely sucked into the journeys of each and every character While reading this book, you get to explore the lives of three different people I loved having all three points of views, and getting to know each character separately Their personalities really showed through as the story went on You will most definitely relate to these girls, and the things they deal with Dani the shy bookworm, looking to breakout of her shell Piper a girl who has so much built anger from not having a stable mother in her life, but tries to find a way to forgive and be happy Tessa a hopeless romantic, looking to find real love like her grandparents, but also trying to find love within herself One of my favorite things about this story, was the people they all met All ranging from different races, genders and ages It was so inspiring to see how these strangers impacted their lives, possibly for the long run In 33 days, these girls go through muchthan they had planned It wasn t smooth sailing, it was hard, and together they concurred something most people can t They found themselves and each other I not only admire them, but anyone else who has taken on this incredible walk Yes, somethings were left unsaid, but I think that was the point You learn from the characters that it s all about living in the present, that in time, things will fall into place Overall, this is a story I would want many people to read You will laugh, swoon and hopefully take something from this, I know I did Even though I haven t physically walked the Camino de Santiago, through Jacqueline s writing, it felt like I was doing it along with them

    Beautiful story about three friends doing the walking pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago The mysterious things miracles that happen on the way, the signs and their ability to read them change their characters forever They definitely grow emotionally during that journey, having time to re think their priorities, and maybe for the first time ever re evaluate their principlesAbsolutely loved it
