Relationships are like road trips.

Sometimes they're an exciting adventure. But sometimes they're like a traffic jam going nowhere. Or even worse, they're a wrong turn that's taken you hundreds of miles off your course.

With much-needed humor and honest advice, bestselling author and speaker Chad Eastham helps you think through tough but necessary relationship issues such as:

- Why some people find happiness, while others find heartache

- Why pain hurts so much

- When to break up

- When to make up

Chad's conversational tone, facts, and advice encourage young people to rethink life's conversations, even the difficult stuff like heartbreak. There is nothing in life that is too big, too painful, or too difficult that God cannot make better and use to teach us about love. Nothing.

3/5 Oscars: Liked it...

-- My Thoughts --

     Relationships are a huge part of teenage lives. The way teens deal with relationships can make or break them for the rest of their lives. So, Chad Eastham has written an epic guide into the utterly-confusing, emotionally-charged mind of the teenage boy/girl and he has nailed it.
      I am not a good fan of self-improvement books, and while, I might not consider this book under that topic, it was a really good one. The way the author divided the book into parts, and parts into chapters was a very easy way to follow and I was never lost. I am a teenager, and I will still be for another couple of years. So, i know that Chad really KNOWS what happens in a teenager's mind, as I could relate to everything he explained. One thing that I loved was the letters Chad posted of teenagers who had problems, they were so easy to relate to. It could have been no different if my name was written at the end of each letter.
     Also loved Chad's amazing quotes and cute, smart-ass connections. He connects two absolutely random things together and threads them into such a meaningful thing. I love a book that I can benefit from and this book did just that. I won't be the same after reading this and I know that my actions, ideas, choices, and reactions will be much better in relationships than before. So thank you, Chad! For showing me such a great guide into my own mind!


  1. I never pick books like this up but if I do, I always enjoy them! I think we can always find something to relate to, they are super helpful! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Judging from the cover, I would have thought it a chick lit ;) But glad it's an outstanding non-fiction! I don't normally read any self-improvement books, but I do like those which deal with teenage issues (since I'm a teen too).

    Good review!
