Book: The Getaway List

Author:  Emma Lord

Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for an advanced audio copy. 

The Getaway List was my second book by Emma Lord, my first being Begin Again. I loved Begin Again so I was very excited to start The Getaway List. 

The story follows Riley who has always done everything her mom wanted. She was in every program you could think of to appease her mom. Her best friend Tom moved to New York and Riley decides against her mom’s wishes that she is going to go to NY to see Tom. 

You learn a lot about Riley and her mom on this journey. Riley’s mom had her when she was young and is worried that Riley will make some similar mistakes. Riley is going through a lot of soul-searching and is just so unsure of herself. When she is Tom she seems to know exactly who she is. 

The supporting characters around Riley and Tom were truly special. I felt the same way when reading her other novel Begin Again. This was when I started to realize just how similar they are. Once I noticed how similar the two were I couldn’t stop spotting similarities. This was a great story even with all the similarities, I just wish It was different from her other novel.

Final score: 4/5
