Meet Callie. She’s nineteen, quirky, and fears commitments. She also has a love/hate relationship with her tennis shoes.

Nine months of college, done and gone, and all Callie has to show for it is her freshman thirty. But alas, no worries, life has other crap plans for her now. Plans that include a set of nuptials from hell for her older, she–devil sister Anna. Struggling to rid her chubby–sexy vibe, Callie is put on a strict Anna regimen of ‘do this do that’ while attempting to avoid the unavoidable. The unavoidable being Ky Hampton: her once skinny–skater–boy turned sex–god, ex best friend from across the street.

Kylan feels as though he is a waste. A mechanic, country music singer with not a lyrics to his name. A boy with a proverbial skateboard still strung around his neck from high school. He’s lost, and he’d be the first to admit it. But the moment he spots Calla Lily––with a cemented penis in hand––the more he realizes that she’s exactly the muse he’s been missing.

But when the going gets tough, and the secrets of her past grow thicker, Callie has to figure out if her tennis shoes will be her escape this time around in life, or her demise instead.
Upon reading the synopsis, one would expect that it's a light read with the possibility of it being fluffy. 
But it's not. 
The very thing that Callie is running away from continues to haunt her, taunting and eventually making her go back. Her sister may be the catalyst for her return but there are a lot of skeletons (in the metaphorical sense of the word) that Callie must face if she ever wanted to move forward. 

I truly find Anna, Callie's sister, annoying yet endearing at the same time. She's a huge pain-in-the-butt to Anna and at times, I just want to strangle her too. But, there are instances where she drops her armor of insults and barbed words and shows her vulnerable side. As the story progressed and I got to know her a little more, I felt like she was just a sister longing for her sibling. She wears her armor so the world doesn't get to her. 

Callie also has her defense mechanism: she runs. She ran from what happened, from the past and even her best friend. She's not really a coward. Rather, she has her own way of dealing with things and running is how she deals with it. Her best friend and later on boyfriend Ky shows opens her to ways and eventually learn on how to be strong. 

Finding Her Way Back is a heart-rending story that deals with death, life and through it all, love and how it still finds an opportunity to grow.

Midwestern native Heather Van Fleet lives in a small town on the Iowa/Illinois border. She’s a wife to her hubby--and high school sweet heart--Chris, as well as a mom to her three little girls, Kelsey, Emma and Bella. When she’s not obsessing over her fictional book characters, cooking dinner, or running around chasing her crazy kiddos, you can usually find her with her head stuck in her Kindle, sucking down White Chocolate Mochas like they're water.
