My Thoughts

Wow!  This book is intense in the best way!  Mira is trying to get home to her mom so she is not alone on the first death anniversary of her sister.  Unfortunately the weather has other plans that ground the planes.  So Mira decides to trust the girl she sat by on the plane, and hitches a ride with her and other college kids who she assumes are her friends.  They are not friends…none of them are.  Now Mira is stuck in a car with strangers driving through one of the worst snowstorms Pennsylvania has ever seen, and she keeps seeing the same guy wearing a yellow baseball cap at every stop.  Creepy? I think so!  Just when you think it can’t get worse there are random pages where someone is writing Mira letters…aka her stalker and they have followed her all the way from CA to PA and they are coming for her.

When I say this book is intense it really is!  First off, driving through a snowstorm set me on edge alone because it’s terrifying.  Second off items begin to disappear like wallets, cellphones, and random other items from each passenger.  This is such a big who did it and I loved it!! I did think it was a little anticlimactic at the end meaning I wasn’t as surprised as I wanted to be.  This was still a page turner!

Thank you Sourcebooks Fire for my #copy. This one is out now!

Goodreads Synopsis

A hitched ride home in a snow storm turns sinister when one of the passengers is plotting for the ride to end in disaster.

When Mira flies home to spend Christmas with her mother in Pittsburgh, a record-breaking blizzard results in a cancelled layover. Desperate to get to her grief-ridden mother in the wake of a family death, Mira hitches a ride with a group of friendly college kids who were on her initial flight.

As the drive progresses and weather conditions become more treacherous, Mira realizes that the four other passengers she’s stuck in the car with don’t actually know one another.

Soon, they’re not just dealing with heavy snowfall and ice-slick roads, but the fact that somebody will stop at nothing to ensure their trip ends in a deadly disaster.
