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.
DESCRIBE THE BOOK IN ONE WORD:
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
Books set during the summer always captivate my heart, and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is the perfect example why summer books will always have a space in my heart. The book is super easy to read but it has enough depth and emotion to capture you. I know the book deals with moving on, but miss Matson does not see this as an excuse not to write a cute and lovely book.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
Zero as in none.
If you know someone who don’t know what a summer or road trip books are, give them this book. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is the perfect 101, but if you are already aware what summer and road trip books are, this is a good reminder why you are in love with those kind of books.
READING SLUMP CURE:
I believe all mss Matson’s books are reading slump cure, because it is very light to read and it is not pressuring you to have some heavy emotions or anything. Miss Matson’s books are just there to take you to a very beautiful world where a lot of things can happen.
