23719270Title: Vengeance Road
Author: Erin Bowman

Publisher: HMH Books for Young Adults

Synopsis: Revenge is worth its weight in gold.
When her father is murdered for a journal revealing the location of a hidden gold mine, eighteen-year-old Kate Thompson disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers—and justice. What she finds are untrustworthy strangers, endless dust and heat, and a surprising band of allies, among them a young Apache girl and a pair of stubborn brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, a startling truth becomes clear: some men will stop at nothing to get their hands on gold, and Kate’s quest for revenge may prove fatal.
Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Overall this book was a delightful western. I really appreciated how the author stayed true to what a western book should be and not one with loads of romance and very little adventure. There were some twists and turns but overall a good read. In terms of characters I really loved Kate. She is different from other female characters I have read. Her thirst for revenge is real and you can feel it has you read. If you are looking for a western with a little romance then this is the book for you.
