Synopsis: Junior year is going to be Mike’s (Mikayla) year. Her new best friend isn’t controlling, her boyfriend adores her and she’s learning to bike with in the mountains without running into trees. She meets a group of rider’s and they welcomed her into their group and she finally feels like she belongs. One special person in particular, Mica, who she really likes and helps support her and gives her confidence but, they’re not dating. When things finally start to come together for Mike her family starts to pressure her into taking more time for school in her future than hanging out with her friends and doing what she wants to do. She also needs to decide if she wants to be a follower or if she wants to do what she wants to do.

Thoughts: This was a cute coming-of-age type of romance. I really loved Micah, he was super cute and you could tell that he really cared for Mike. They had a great connection with there being bikes and they really seem to understand each other. It also is a very relatable book because Mike has all these choices about what she needs to decide for her future her friendships and any and everything else. Mike also learns that she has to be true to herself and make decisions just for her nobody else. Overall this was a really enjoyable and fun read.
