Destiny Faraday makes a point of keeping a distance from her classmates at Hedgebrook Academy. She likes to keep some routine and predictability, so that she doesn't get attached to anyone, when she has to leave again. But one day, with a crumpling of a calendar page and an odd encounter with a mysterious stranger makes her life turn for the better. She wants just one fair day, where the good guy wins.
She finds a car at their disposal. So, Destiny and three of her classmates embark on an unauthorized road trip. On the road trip, they find a ton of great things happening for no reason.
Destiny was interesting. I loved that she had an interest in numbers and finding commonalities in it. Seth was awesome and sweet at the right moments. Mira was cute and Aidan was really smart. The plot took off really good, but the coincidence got annoying at times. It had a surprising ending that totally shocked me. It was original and awesome. Pearson's writing was great, and she made amazing charcters and setting. I recommend this book and you should check it out.
