Destination Unknown - Amy Clipston

About the book:  
It’s senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect. When she gets a D in Calculus, her mother immediately hires a tutor, worried Whitney won’t get into the “right” college—her alma mater—with imperfect grades. Her tutor, Taylor, is a quiet, mysterious boy who is unlike anyone Whitney has met before. But Taylor’s rougher upbringing has her mother and friends discouraging any type of relationship.
Tired of having to play a part for everyone else, Whitney quits the cheerleading squad that once defined her social identity, and begins spending more time with Taylor. Her mom and friends worry Whitney is making a huge mistake, and even Taylor begins to show concern for some of her choices. But for the first time, Whitney is in the driver’s seat of her life. Will she be able to find her identity—and God’s plan for her life—before she throws everything away?

My thoughts:

Finding well written novels for the teen readers can often be a challenge, especially when one is selective of the content and subjects that seem to be geared toward that age.  I was familiar with Clipston's writing of her adult Christian Fiction, so I was hoping this series would be an acceptable possibility for Young Adults.  Clipston did not disappoint!  "Destination Unknown" (book 2 in the series) is well written, exciting, romantic (just enough for that age group), and interesting enough that even adults would enjoy reading it (guilty!). Clipston writes in such a way that the story leaps off the page and places the reader in to the setting, experiencing everything first hand.  For those not wishing to relive their high school days?  Take a chance on this series, it's unlike anything you've ever read or experienced, and you won't be disappointed!
