Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson


Amy & Roger's Epic Detour
Morgan Matson


Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn't seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she's coming to terms with her father's death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

So, I guess it's unofficial YA road trips week? Because I have another road trip book I plan to review later this week too.

Anyway, I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it. Between the adorable cover and the...well the road trip, I was hooked.

I just loved this. I really did. I can't even pinpoint why. But I read the ARC version, which doesn't have all the fun pictures and postcards included and while reading, I kept thinking how I was going to have to get a hardcover version so I COULD have all of that. That's how I knew this book was love.

Amy and Roger are one of the cutest couples ever. I could feel their Chemistry from the beginning, even though they were both closed off and dealing with their own problems on their own.

Honestly, I loved this. Very cute, fairly light chick lit perfect for this time of year!
