Destination Unknown by Amy Clipston Book Review

I read this book last summer and loved it just as much as the first book in this trilogy. Destination Unknown is the second book in the Roadside Assistance trilogy and follows the story of Whitney, Emily’s cousin. I loved it and can’t wait to give you guys a short review on it!


It’s senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect. When she gets a D in Calculus, her mother immediately hires a tutor, worried Whitney won’t get into the “right” college—her alma mater—with imperfect grades. Her tutor, Taylor, is a quiet, mysterious boy who is unlike anyone Whitney has met before. But Taylor’s rougher upbringing has her mother and friends discouraging any type of relationship.

Tired of having to play a part for everyone else, Whitney quits the cheerleading squad that once defined her social identity, and begins spending more time with Taylor. Her mom and friends worry Whitney is making a huge mistake, and even Taylor begins to show concern for some of her choices. But for the first time, Whitney is in the driver’s seat of her life. Will she be able to find her identity—and God’s plan for her life—before she throws everything away?

My Review

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars

I loved this a lot! It was the best to visit all of these characters again, especially getting to see Zander and Emily again. *heart eyes*

I really loved Whitney’s story. She was super relatable for me and her struggles to figure out who she truly is instead of who everyone tells her she is something I think a lot of teens can relate to. I didn’t like her a whole lot in the first book but after getting her own story, I really like her!
Taylor was amazing too. I loved him and his family, especially Vanessa. Plus he’s a reader soo that makes him even better!

Whitney’s mom drove me crazy most of the book and Whitney did too… but you gotta love these dysfunctional people! 😂

Anyways, I loved, loved, LOVED it! It gets 5 huge stars and more. I can’t wait to read the next one!!!


If you’re looking for a fun, clean YA contemporary that has a love story and deals with family relationships, this one is so, so good!

I know this review is much shorter than my usual reviews but the long and the short of it is— I love this book and recommend this trilogy! I plan to reread it someday soon, and when I do, I plan to update this review with more details!
