"The Whole Way Home"

Sarah Creech is the author of two novels, Season of the Dragonflies and The Whole Way Home.

She applied the Page 69 Test to The Whole Way Home and reported the following:
From page 69:
J.D. wondered if Nick knew that story, wondered what she’d chosen to share with him about Gatesville. Jo had it hard back there, harder than anybody ever deserved. His red-winged blackbird. Best skeet shooter he knew and best whiskey drinker too. No singer could harmonize with him the way she could, and he doubted any singer ever would.
I wasn’t quite sure what I’d find on page 69, but as soon as I opened it up, I said, “Oh yeah, that’s the book.” So on this page J.D. Gunn Google-stalks Jo Lover after he watches her perform at her Grand Ole Opry induction. He’s torturing himself by looking at all the photos of Jo and Nick after their recent engagement announcement. He thinks she looks happy (interpreted, of course, through this barrier of technology), but he can’t shake his conviction that Nick doesn’t know anything about Jo’s past. J.D. is certain the bond that started between them as children hasn’t yet died, despite all hurt they put each other through over the years. He wants her to be happy, but he also knows he loves her still. He thinks it’s possible she loves him still too. One of the major themes of this novel is the connection to childhood and home, and each of my main characters represents home to the other, especially in their high profile careers in Nashville.
