I liked the idea of Redemption touring with Iron Cross because since Redemption is a girl band and Iron Cross is a guy band so it gives a romantic twist.

Format: Paperback
"Road Trip" continues the story of Chloe Miller, a punky teenage rebel-turned-Christian who's in a band, Redemption, with her two best friends, Laura and Allie. In this addition to the series, they go on a tour with Iron Cross, the most popular Christian band in the country. They encounter many problems on their tour, such as Laura's sudden drug usage. But of course, in the end, everything turns out alright...almost. At the end of the book, the girls are waiting to see if Laura's mom will let her continue to be in the band.

She probably will, because even though the Chloe books are supposed to be easier to relate to than the Caitlin ones--which they are, in a sense--the Chloe books seem to be becoming more & more unrealistic. It's very rare that a band that has only been together for six months gets on the bestseller list. And it seems as if every time something goes wrong for the band, it works out for the better.

I'm not trying to sound pessimistic or anything, but sometimes, that's not how it works in real life. Some problems are never solved. Yet it seems that, even though Laura did have her drug problem, and other obstacles popped up in the book, Chloe is usually happy. Most teens, even if they are Christians, are battling depression, but Chloe's band is apparently headed straight to the top, and everyone around her seems to be becoming Christians.

I'm not saying I hate these books or anything. In fact, Melody Carlson is probably my favorite author right now. If you're looking for a fun read, definitely choose this book. It's just frustrating that everything in Chloe's life, no matter how un-perfect it is, seems to become almost perfect within the next few pages.

Format: Paperback
This book was about Chloe, Laura, and Allie. These 3 teenage girls have formed a band called Redemption and in this book they are on tour after being discovered by a Christian music industry called Omega and it was a success! Well, this book is in first person view and told by Chloe. Chloe loves being on tour but feels uncomfortable singing autographs and being praised so much. Sooner or later she comes around and gets used to it. Well they have constant practice and have concerts that normally turn out great. But Laura starts getting grumpy by the loss of sleep but normally gets pepped up in time for the concert. Then Chloe discovers Allie's Ritalin bottle is empty. Allie doesn't take her Ritalin because it makes her too groggy. Chloe gets suspicious and discovers Laura's got hooked on drugs including Allie's Ritalin. Laura uses her weak strength to get out this mess but of course, uses God's help. Laura comes through and gets off drugs. She tells Omega and they just make her got to a rehab program and Allie and Chloe have to attend Al-Anon classes which are classes for somebody's close friends, family, etc. that are trying to help that person get off of alcohol problems, drugs, etc. During this tour Redemption tours with Iron Cross, a big-hit Christian guy band. Laura confesses her problem to them and national TV. You have to read the book to find out the ending with the band, the romance, the drugs, and what God has in store for them next!

I liked the idea of Redemption touring with Iron Cross because since Redemption is a girl band and Iron Cross is a guy band so it gives a romantic twist. I also liked the idea that the angelic girl, Laura, got hooked on drugs even though drugs are awful and I despise them, but it thickened the plot and proved anyone could get hooked on it.

Format: Paperback
The Christian rock group Redemption is on its way to fame and glory when it signs a major contract and tour as the opening act for the highly regarded male group, Iron Cross. As the trio travels the road by bus, they will find trials and tribulations riding with them.
Chloe, Allie and Laura soon find the grind of touring taking its toll on each one of them. Laura seems off kilter, turning introspectively moodier by the minute. Chloe looks like she is ready to bolt for home every time a crowd gathers around the trio though she finds some solace with Allie's mom and her Down's syndrome brother. However, the one in deepest troubled waters is Allie, whose showing a growing dependence on drugs that could destroy her career and end Redemption's dreams of success.
The latest teenage girl novel, ROAD TRIP, is an engaging look at the troubles of teen life especially those under the spotlight of fame. The story line may be Chloe's diary, but actually is mostly told in third person narration between the key cast members as each suffers from doubts and woes that make them so human instead of preachy paragons. Melody Carlson provides a warm, but frank Christian teen tale that will provide plenty of enjoyment yet inspire young and old to more than just tolerate others. Anyone who has not read the previous novels of this motivating interesting series such as I AM CHLOE will, like this reviewer, want to obtain them.

Redemption is a huge success but fame wears on Chloe, Allie, and Laura. Chloe worries about Laura's growing signs of drug addiction- especially since Laura has always been the steady, even keeled one. Chloe doesn't know what to do about her feelings for Jeremy, lead singer of Iron Cross. The band is falling apart and Chloe knows at this rate, they aren't going to make it. But they all have a lot to learn about God's redemption. Great read!
