Amy and Roger's Epic Detour - Morgan Matson

Publication: May 4th 2010 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


Goodreads Synopsis


Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.





4.5 out of 5 stars!


I guess I started my 2015 right.


This book was pure perfection! Throughout the book, I felt like I was really having the time of my life travelling to different places in America. It made me want to go out and see the world. The little scrapbook added to the book was my favorite thing to look at; I think it was a really cute touch to the story and added more life to their trip.


The characters, Amy and Roger, were easy to love. They had some issues of their own and it was so great to see them gradually get out of it and see them develop throughout the book. It was very exciting to see their relationship build up from kinda strangers to friends to something more than that in just a matter of a couple days.


The only problem I had was things were becoming better for Amy and then before I knew it, I was on the last page. Why did it end that way? NO! JUST NO! I wanted it to be longer. I DEMAND FOR A SEQUEL! *hi, Ms. Matson :’) *


This book made me feel good. It was just great; the kind that you would never expect to fall in love with. Just the book I would recommend to anyone.

Now I really want to go on a road trip with a cute boy and get stuck in the middle of nowhere so we’d be on a trip forever.
