If a book was somehow written just for me, I think this one hits close to the spot.
The Disenchantments starts off with Bev and Colby getting ready to plan their lives. They are seniors and instead of going to college in the fall, they want to be hitching to Europe. But before going to Europe, Bev's band, The Disenchantments are going to be doing a tour. Colby thinks he has everything planned and perfect, but a quick detour changes that.
This book is told in Colby's perspective. And along with Charlie and Dash(...and a few others XP), Colby is a guy I want to give a really big hug to. He is a really sweet guy and I love how LaCour wrote it that made him a believable guy! Throughout most of the book, he is trying to figure plans for his future so you see the struggles he faces.
This is a road trip book, so if you enjoy those things--pick this one up! But besides being a road trip, so much was made. Everything went by really fast, like a good memory that you want to last, and even though they were fast you get to meet all these people that inspired Colby, and they are all really beautiful people.
It makes you feel like you are tangled with heartstrings reading this book. And radiant somewhere in your heart that when you close the book, you don't want to say goodbye to these characters. And as Peter Pan says, “Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”
