Review: Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham

1 Concert
2000 Miles
3 Ex-Best Friends
Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends.
Back in middle school, the three girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3.But when the band broke up, so did their friendship. Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books.
Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show.
Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse. And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. Good thing Alice’s graduation gift (a pea-green 1976 VW camper van known as the Pea Pod) is just the vehicle to get them there.
But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?
This book shows the reader the journey of three girls who were once best friends who shared everything and were inseparable but who no longer even talk to each other. They all went their separate ways until a few days after graduation, when Alice suggests they all three go on a road trip to see their once-favorite band in concert. On the road, the girls run into obstacle after obstacle, both internal and external. The author lets the reader into the minds of all three girls; showing the reader that sometimes how someone acts on the outside is not always how they feel on the inside. The author did a great job writing this book.
