  • I'm keeping this one short: First, it's Painfully Predictable.Second: I found it incredibly difficult to like the protagonist in this one; granted liking the lead isn't a requisite for good reading, but it does make things easier, right? There's the fact that she's a snob and aware that she was behaving thus; there's also her tendency to act bratty. Good effort is given to justify her behavior but let's face it: nothing really justifies acting like a brat. Despite all that, she's New Girl and fi [...]

  • First of all, I love the cover! More seriously, this is a fun contemporary young adult romance. I enjoyed the perspective of a city girl (from Boston) being introduced to country life (in Kansas). Yes, our heroine is snobby and whiny and does stupid things at first, but she grows by the end.(view spoiler)[I spent a lot of time in the beginning trying to figure out what she saw in Alex and thinking I would have liked Jesse a lot better, so I was glad when the book twisted in that direction. Proba [...]

  • Last Train Home is book one in The Home Series by Megan Nugen Isbell. It is a cute, sweet high school dramatic rendition of a city girl being thrown into a little country town. They are all in high school and the only things they worry about is who goes with whom and their popularity, what high school senior doesn't? Riley Regas is seventeen years old and her parents have gotten divorced. Her mom is moving them from their home in Boston, where Riley is a senior this year, to Carver, Kansas. Whil [...]


  • Let me start by saying that I liked the book. But, yes – there is a but. The main character drove me nuts at first. Riley Regas is originally from Boston, and on a whim, her mother decides to move back home to Carver, Kansas. The reason behind the move is unknown, and let's just say that it's not well received by Riley. She feels like her mother has done her wrong, and basically starts being bratty.  She absolutely loathes the town of Carver, and believes that everyone that lives in it is so [...]


  • “People say a lot of things to get what they want.”I was conflicted with this novel pretty much beginning to end. I was well written and had all the makings of an emotional rollercoaster love story. I just wish it wasn’t so closely related to most of the young adult romance, coming of age stories, that seem to be a regular plot line. I will say that if you enjoyed movies like Mean Girls and The Duff this was very much on point and something you would enjoy. I was planning to give it three [...]


  • I enjoyed this book a lot because it created this perfect atmosphere, although, with my grown up mind I disagreed to main character's, Railey's point of view, the story itself had this ability to swallow, me, a reader into the story, face the culmination and feel all the crappy emotions one can have.So what this is about? You will be reading the life of last year in High School, what's more, Riley starts her studies is a new school, in a small town where everyone spots she is the newbie there an [...]


  • 17 year old Riley finds her life changed overnight when her mother decides to move them from their home in Boston to the small town of her birth Carver, Kansas following a traumatic divorce.Having had very little contact with her maternal family over the past few years, Riley is apprehensive about the move but realises it is not optional. She takes out her upset on her mother, but settles quickly into her new high school and soon makes a group of friends and one notable enemy –the popular Adri [...]


  • This is an amazing read. The way the author has written this is not a style I would normally read, but there was something about Riley, Jesse and Alex that just drew you in, you need to know what was going to happen. This is a book I would give a 4-star rating and recommend it to anyone who loves a hero ending.Riley is not happy with her mother after the divorce. Her mother made her move from her home in Boston and her friends. They were going to move in with her grandmother in Caver which was i [...]


  • Last Train Home (The Home Series) by Megan Nugen Isbell is the first book of the series. This is a YA/romance novel that I gave 4 out of 5 stars. It is written in first person POV by the main character, Riley. This is the life and times of high schooler, Riley. She is a Boston girl through and through, and is forced to move to a small town in Kansas after her parents split. Naturally, any high school girl would feel that a move to anywhere unfamiliar is the end of social life altogether. Riley i [...]

She struggles with being uprooted at age 17 and spends most of the book giving her mom attitude and commenting to anyone who will listen about how much better Boston is.

  • Riley is in the middle of an early life crisis after moving to Kansas from her home in Boston, but what she finds there will change her life, and her perspective, for the better. She is such a strong teen who is going through a little bit more struggle than your average teen, but for the most part she handles it well. We all wanted to lash out at our parents for one reason or another throughout our teenage years, so you truly can't fault her for that. I was disappointed in some scenes, but the o [...]


  • Last Train Home by Megan Nugen Isbell is book one of The Home Series. This was not the first book I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed this book just as much as I've enjoyed some of her other books. This book, to me, is about accepting or learning to accept change and learning from mistakes. Riley Regas has spent her entire life in Boston. Her parents have divorced and even though that was difficult, she dealt with it and her father's new girlfriend. She's just starting [...]

  • Last Train Home by Megan Nugen Isbell is the first book in the Home Series.Megan Nugen Isbell has written a beautiful story and this book will captivate you from the very start. I really enjoed the stories of Riley and Jessie and their relationships. I only have one qualm with this book which is the main character Riley could have been less of a spoilt brat. I understand what the author was trying to portray which is the fact that when you are seventeen everything is a massive drama and worse th [...]
