Take Me With You
Take Me With You | Catherine Ryan Hyde
24 posts | 34 read | 34 to read
Seth and his little brother Henry havent had the most stable of upbringings. Their father has been in and out of jail; their mother took off years ago and hasn't been seen since. Life is constantly uncertain - but a twist of fate could be just what they need. August stopped drinking the day his son died. While on a journey thats very close to his heart, a breakdown leaves him stranded in a small town and at the mercy of the local mechanic - Seth and Henrys father. But then August is presented with an offer he doesn't expect: take the two boys with him for the summer, and pay no charge for the repairs. As the unlikely trio set out on their road trip, the most unlikely, unforgettable friendship begins to take shape. Take Me With You is a moving, thought-provoking story that fans of Jodi Picoult, Susan Lewis or Diane Chamberlain will love, or the perfect read for those looking for something special to curl up with.

My new favorite from one of my favorite authors.

Reggie I loved this one. I always think about that conversation he has with that guy wondering if he took the two boys away from their father would they be better off. And the guy says that sometimes having to deal with those problems is how we become who we are today. I‘m not saying it right but that‘s the gist. 1y
Blueberry I can't start a new book yet because I'm still feeling this one. 1y
Blueberry @Reggie 🧡 I was driving today and just missed a yellow light. First I thought 'darn', then I thought 'just be'. That will be my takeaway. 1y

1. I don't think I've ever read one (other than non-fiction)! I just looked to see if there are any fantasy set in national parks and didn't find one either. Bummer 😏 The tagged sounds interesting!
2. I've wanted to see Acadia for a while!
3. I have a few there already 😉

ozma.of.oz Acadia is gorgeous! And a fantasy set in a national park would be awesome! Thanks for sharing! 2y
Blueberry The tagged is a great book. 1y

Read this on my kindle a few years back.

Reggie I loved this book. I think about when he tells the Native guy at AA that he wants to keep the kids. And the Native guy tells him sometimes having a hard childhood is what makes your life better. Something to that effect. Such a good book. 5y
vkois88 Sounds good! 5y

Started reading this this morning between cleaning and laundry and I will probably finish it tonight. Predictable, but good feels. The kids remind me of my nephews.

This sat in my tbr pile for a while because it looked kinda sad and depressing. I was wrong, it was a great read! Yes, some parts you may need to have the tissues handy but overall the book is pretty inspiring and thoughtful. My tbr is officially empty, I guess it's time for some rereads.

August, a recovering alcoholic, is on a summer long vacation to Yellowstone to memorialize his dead son. His ride breaks down. The mechanic offers the fix for free if he takes his 2 sons on the trip with him. He's headed to jail for 90 days and has no one to look after the kids. August says yes and changes their lives forever. This book was beautiful and heart-wrenching and my only gripe, at times felt sanitized. Still, a great read.

Cinfhen Sounds amazing - stacked! 6y
Texreader Excellent review 6y

By a new-to-me author whom I will certainly look forward to reading more, this story grabbed me right away and left me wanting more time with the characters while still having a satisfying ending. (Read for my real life book club, which is 3 for 4 so far in book choices!)

OMGGGGGGGG how good was that book????? I loved it! The characters, August, Seth & Henry, the dialogue, the messages & words of wisdom. The dog, Woody. The camping, the hiking, the climbing. There were parts where I cried my eyes out. Didn't know the author wrote Pay it Forward, too. Saw the movie, haven't read the book. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterT Next up will be my first #GameOfTomes #LitsyGoesPostal book swap book!

tpixie Pay it Forward is an awesome book! It stayed with me a long time. Ending is different than movie, I recall. 6y

Needed a little ice cream to go with my Friday night read. I'm only 42% into my 2nd book 📚 of the year, #T of #LitsyAtoZ, due to a busy work week and taking care of my 89-yo mom, but this book is REALLY GOOD!!!! I'm kind of glad I haven't had time to read because I don't want it to end. I love these characters a lot.

Hyde is one of my favorite go-to authors. I listened to 80% of this on audible, then finished up tonight on the Kindle. Enough suspense to keep you on edge, enough humor to keep smiling, and - as all her books- enough tear-jerking to regret any eye make-up. She has a magical way with words as she creates characters of real depth. I KNOW August and those boys.
