She's a cheerleader because Mom wanted her to be a cheerleader. She's blond because Mom wanted her to be blond. She needs to attend Kentwood U because it's a prestigious school, and she's a banker's daughter.

About the Book:It's senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect.

I winced my way through this book. List of things I didn't like:1) You are not a Christian because you pray at dinner and when life sucks: Whitney's prayers that were described sounded like a list of wants/demands to me. The first sign to me that she was Christian was when her family sat down to dinner and prayed first. Her only other Christian moments were when she prayed and was nice to Taylor's little sister because she can't afford cheerleading training. Also, I don't know how it works in Am [...]

Wow wow wow. I am not much for contemporary romance, but this one really surprised me. I didn't realize that this apparently takes place after Roadside Assistance, so I'd suggest reading that one first, but I liked it pretty well as a standalone.The GoodI felt really connected to Whitney. She's a senior (like I'm going to be), so she's facing all the uncertainty of college. She's also got a pretty strong faith. And Taylor. Oh, oh, oh. Where do I start with Taylor? He was just plain awesome. What [...]

Teen girls are going to love getting their hands on a copy of "Destination Unknown", the latest release from popular author Amy Clipston. The novel moves at a brisk pace, featuring a character who struggles with everyday things that all girls will be able to relate to. Mother-teen conflict, bullying, prejudice, uncertainty about the future - this book has a little bit of everything, and as such there is plenty of drama to hold a reader's interest from beginning to end. Some of the introspection [...]

My CommentsI loved Roadside Assistance so when I discovered Destination Unknown was available, I knew I also had to read about Whitney! Whitney is Emily’s cousin and they became really close in the previous book. Whitney was not my favorite character until the end of the book where she became my hero in the story. In Destination Unknown, she now has to face her mom and others in challenging ways.Whitney has always been the ideal student with a perfect 4.o GPA, the head cheerleader on the squad [...]

Whitney Richards seems to have the perfect life. She lives in a high end neighborhood, she is the captain of the cheerleading team, she is a straight A student and she dates the captain of the football team. When she gets a D in calculus her whole life starts changing. But what she perceives to be the worst day of her life she soon finds to be the start of her life changing for the better. When Taylor Martinez, a student from the poor side of town, becomes her tutor she finds herself falling in [...]

This review can also be found on The NerdHerd ReadsI loved this book. I will start out by saying that this book may not be for everyone. It is Christian fiction, but it isn't preachy, and I think that this is one that can be enjoyed by all people. I loved it (did I already say that?) but more on that later.Whitney is a senior in high school. If that doesn't come with enough stress, her mother's pressures to be "perfect" are causing Whitney to crack. She doesn't even know who she is, but it's abo [...]

I’m having a very hard time trying to come up with anything that I liked about this book. From the clichéd plot to the ridiculous dialog, this book was painful to read. But what bothered me most were the characters' Christian walk. Mrs. Richards is a two-faced hypocrite who doesn’t grow at all. I realize the story wasn’t about her, but I expected her to have at least some change of heart rather than end the book just as prejudice and controlling as she began. And Whitney’s prayers seeme [...]

I almost didn’t read the second book in this series because of the first book having a comment of a character saying to another character that a guy looked like a god. However, I got this book for a good deal and thought I should give it a shot. To me, this book was so much better than the first. I loved how the main character, Whitney, had a strong faith in God from the start and this book was about her wanting to follow His plan for her, rather than questioning her faith in God. Sometimes, I [...]

So good! I think I may have even liked it better than Roadside Assistance?? I don't know, it's hard to say. Maybe I just really like Taylor a lothe's pretty much amazing.I wanted to scream at Whitney's mom throughout the entire book basically, and I hated when Whitney would lie to her. I wanted to yell a her, "No! Stop! This isn't the way!!!" But it was still really good.

I hated all the lying but the story was SO GOOD! I loved seeing Whitney's character more and the whole forbidden love concept was so intriguing. I loved Whitney's story of finding herself.LOVE LOVE LOVE! Must read!

~2.75/5

2.5 stars. Ultimately, I was disappointed. Her mom was really weird. The methods of punishing (by grounding and having things taken away) was stupid and ineffective. Essentially, her parenting style really alarmed and bothered me, and I was incredibly disappointed that this was never truly referenced. Sure, I get the whole, "I love you and want whats best for you and that's why I'm ultra-controlling and also I can't believe you're growing up so I'm trying to hold onto you by being way too in you [...]

Could it get more humiliating for a girl who's a tutor herself?Truth told, Whitney doesn't want to go to her mother's exclusive alma mater after high school.

More than just explaining mathematic concepts, Taylor begins to challenge Whitney to look beyond her prep school life and the popular crowd.

DESTINATION UNKNOWN ReviewBy Amy ClipstonWhat is worse than your boyfriend breaking up with you on Valentine’s Day, while your two best friends’ boyfriends give them nice gifts? Could the D on a calculus test be worse? Or how about the fact that your mother says you need a tutor to bring that grade up and not ruin your grade point average to get into college? Is being grounded for two weeks or seeing your best friends in a different light worse? Eighteen-year-old Whitney Richards faces all o [...]

I have been waiting for the sequel to Roadside Assistance to come out. I really enjoyed the first one and wanted to see how Whitney's life turns out. Well, I was equally happy with the second book. Now we await the third.Whitney is a senior in high school. She should be having the time of her life. Her grades have always been good. She has a football player boyfriends. She is in the popular crowd. However, things start to unravel around Valentine's Day. Her boyfriend breaks up with her and lette [...]

First of all, I will say that I did enjoy reading this book. However, there was nothing special about it, and there were several aspects about it that I did not like or disagreed with. The story flowed pretty well and the writing itself was not too bad, with the exception of the “heartfelt” scenes between Taylor and Whitney. The dialogue there seemed forced and very unrealistic. (In other words, no one talks like that in real life.) Other than those parts, the writing was okay. And I really [...]

No words can describe this book!!!!!!!! I think Whitney should of just told her mom the truth about her desire to go to the prom with Taylor. If I were Whitney I would have found a way to go with Taylor without lying to my mother. No, no one ever try to pressure me away form things I feel passionate about. When I feel low I like to sometimes write in my diary asking god for guidance and writing down why I feel low and expressing my thoughts and emotions. Yes, I think Whitney did the right thing [...]

This book is the sequel to one titled, Roadside Assistance, which I haven’t read however this book was really good even without having read the prequel to it. Even though it’s a juvenile Christian fiction book I found myself quickly caught up in Whitney’s world, though I’m 35 I still remember, vividly, the days of parental directions, rules and high school woes. While I cringed each and every time Whitney back talked her mom, with no consequences, I know that for some this is how teens a [...]

What an incredible story this was! I absolutely loved it. Once I started reading, I could not stop. It was just that good.I loved this book for so many reasons. Whitney and Taylor, Zander and Emily, Vanessa, Whitney's dad and brother, they were all tops. I appreciated how they each had their role to play. On the flip side, Whitney's mother, Brett, and Misty were.y. For one reason or another, they each rubbed Whitney the wrong way. Ultimately, they had their role to play as well. The struggle tha [...]

Whitney Richards is the captain of the cheerleading squad. She is also trying to be the perfect daughter that her mother wants her to be. However, when her boyfriend, the captain of the football team breaks up with her on Valentine’s Day, she realizes that she isn’t all that upset about it. In fact, she never really enjoyed being his girlfriend all that much anyway. When her mother finds out that Whitney didn’t do very well on one calculus test she goes ballistic and makes Whitney get a ma [...]

Destination Unknown by Amy Clipston was a wonderful book, that I enjoyed very much. Though Whitney has everything she could want, the one thing she doesn't have is her freedom. Everything in Whitney's life is decided for her by her mother; from her hair color, to her activities, to the College she will attend, and even her friends. Consequently she is unable to live her own life and be herself. When her self centered rude boyfriend breaks up with her on Valentines day, and her friends and even h [...]

This review is also posted at Book by Book.Following Roadside Assistance, Destination Unknown by Amy Clipston tells the story of Whitney Richards’ search for identity, and her plight is entirely relatable. As a high school senior, she faces many commonplace issues – overbearing parents, bad grades, changing friendships, bullying, college choices. Of course, she makes plenty of mistakes while navigating them to determine who she is and what her future holds, but ultimately learns her lessons. [...]

I’ve read this lovely book twice, and it never gets old! The plot, family dynamic and the Christian themes provide just enough depth to tone down some of the annoying characters. (Characters that are actually necessary to the feel of this story.)This book is a contemporary in that it’s very simple to read and understand but it’s not fluffy or “air-head-ish” like most of that category!Whitney suffers from the consequences of her parents spoiling her just a bit too much-and getting a rud [...]
