Blossom Springtime Weatherby Franklin doesn't know much, but she does know that she's tired of life in a small town. The unraveling of a lifelong lie sends her packing, fleeing as far as she can from her mother and her string of live in uncles.
Even if she only has what's left in her childhood piggy bank and one beat up rebel of a car stuffed to the brim with broken suitcases and trashbags, Blossom is determined to go the distance and start fresh far from the corn fields and familiarity of small town Indiana.
Through a hilarious series of unfortunate events and bad decisions, Blossom finds out exactly what she's capable of when she takes her life into her own hands.
I currently live in Munich, Germany, with my Egyptian husband and rescued street dog from India.
I teach content creation and theories of media at a university, run Happy Writing Co, drink too much coffee, and constantly hunt for dinosaur shaped office supplies.
One of my favorite pieces of this particular book are Blossom's notes.
This is a habit of mine, and one of the pieces I infused in to her growth and journey from me. As an author, there are times when you infuse your own soul in to your books. Blossom's growth and constant reminder of these lessons to herself is a piece of my own journey from small town girl to world traveling adventurer.
The Wrong Side of Twenty Five
Note to self: Don’t get selfish and expect all the changes to happen at once. Sometimes they happen slowly and present themselves in different ways. If you forget this, remember Kansas.
