"Moving, emotional and immensely uplighting. This is Carey's finest work to date. She really outdid herself writing Better, and from the very first page, you can see her soul shining through. This is a book that pulls you in from the beginning, gutting your heart and piecing it back together again bit by bit. ~ J L Berg, 5 stars

** inspired by actual events **
Aubrey is embarking on a bucket list trip around the world, the last wish of her Aunt Ally. It was supposed to be the trip Ally would take when she got better. Now it's just a chance for Aubrey to say goodbye.

Adam escapes in his solo trips overseas, working just enough to fund the next one. When the opportunity to circle the globe falls in his lap he can't refuse. The only catch, he won't be traveling alone this time.

Unable to hide from each other Adam's overprotective nature thwarts Aubrey's desire to find her own way. Can they move past initial assumptions to find something better?

The price of Better has been reduced to $2.99

This book was so amazing but I'm not going to lie when I say the other blogger and I were not sure we could read it when we started with the opening pages, however I am so glad we did. If I could put starts on here I would because this is a 5 star read. This is the most inspirational powerful book I have read in a really long time. This is the story of how ones aunts last wish is for her niece to travel the world like she wanted to. You follow the journey with Aubrey as she travels the world with Adam who was asked to go along with her for safety reasons. But this isn't just any journey it is the journey that Aubrey takes to not only say goodbye to her aunt but find herself instead. But what she doesn't intend on finding is the friendships she made along the way. Aubrey's strength is one that we have all live through when we have lost someone close to us. Seeing the countries she visits through her eyes is like being there with her. I loved this book and I know you all will too.
