The Right Of Way: A Millennial's Journey To Pay Off Her Loans is a new adult/young adult contemporary fiction novel written by L.B. Lewis. Sierra Wellington had done all the right things that a child of a conservative upper middle class family could be expected to do. She had majored in business and gone on for her MBA in Real Estate. It had been over a year since she had gotten her masters, however, and she still hadn't found a job. Speaking with her parents back in Detroit was something she had come to dread as, each time she did, her mom seemed to be rebuking Sierra for not succeeding or at least finding a good husband and provider so she could brag to their extended family about how well her daughter was doing. Gradually, Sierra had withdrawn from social media as something she really didn't have time for, as well as to avoid seeing the announcements of her more successful friends. To make ends meet, she had had to borrow money from her parents and was working part-time at Whole Foods while she mailed out an endless succession of job applications. Finally, she had a call-back for an in-person interview in Houston. Texas was a big change from Detroit, and, more recently Washington, DC, but the thought of being able to cover her living expenses and begin to chip away at her student loans had her ready to accept just about any job they offered her.

L.B. Lewis's new adult contemporary fiction novel, The Right Of Way: A Millennial's Journey To Pay Off Her Loans, will resonate with so many readers, whether they're millennials, Generation X or even Baby Boomers still in the job market and struggling to pay off student loans that seem impossible to pay down. I could feel Sierra's growing sense of alienation from friends and family and shared her relief and excitement as she signed that first lease agreement for an apartment in Houston. Lewis's story is compelling and well-written, and Sierra's struggle to get past her concerns over parental approval and make her way in the world had me cheering her on throughout this enjoyable and fast-paced novel. With it listed as the first book in a modern trilogy, I'm looking forward to the next installment in Sierra's story. The Right Of Way: A Millennial's Journey To Pay Off Her Loans is a marvelous read and it's most highly recommended.
