My Ticket Out is a well-written book that takes the reader from the highest to the lowest.
What was the book about?
Two high school friends, Charlie Baker and Aspen Sullivan have their whole lives ahead of them. Filled with dreams and aspirations, they search for new worlds beyond their small southern town.
Soon the budding friendship begins to grow into more than either expected. With a past dipped in mystery, a basketball scholarship on the line, will new revelations about their relationship hold up against the secrets kept in the dark and new challenges emerging to the surface?

This book caused me to evolve on so many levels, touching me in ways never before. You know a book is good when it makes you feel all the emotions deep from inside. Being a YA book, I never expected to be touched and to relate to the characters as deeply as I did. The characters drew me in and stirred all the emotions that remained buried inside me. Their journey carried me to places that my imagination has never travelled.
The ending was powerful and, I was left stripped raw and disarmed. I am giving this book a 5-star review because the author achieved what she wanted to achieve, a forever lasting impression. I enjoyed the book, and it broke me to my core, so, Kudos to Ms. Marton. It was quite the journey.
This was a great book. The story pulled me in completely and took me into the world of Charlie and Aspen.
I am at peace with the fact that even in books, sometimes, life isn’t fair.
The character development was outstanding, making it impossible not to fall in love with them. Their chemistry is undeniable, making you instantly: Team Charlie and Aspen.
The author touched my emotions deeper than most. An author that can achieve this with a reader earns the highest honour. I reiterate: it is a very well-written book. My utmost admiration to J.N. Marton; this was extraordinary. I thank you.
