SynopsisAmy 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.



My Thoughts: This book was amazing and is now one of my favorite books that I have read! The way things go with Amy and Roger is so natural and there is NO instalove thank goodness. The road trip aspect of this book was so cool. I have always wanted to go on a cross country road trip! I can relate to Amy in a lot of ways having lost my father myself, so it was nice to have normal main characters in this book. This book is really easy to get absorbed into. I was reading and before I knew it had read over 100 pages in no time at all. I love books like that and I can’t recommend this enough, honestly.
