-Synopsis taken from Goodreads
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.
3.7 out of 5
A cute love story about a roadtrip across America? Count me in!
Amy and Roger are both heading across the country for the Summer, so their Parents arrange for them to go together. Roger agrees for the chance to see his ex, while Amy is still dealing with the loss of her Father and can’t stay alone at her house anymore.
The adventure they go on isn’t just one of great dinners and fast food but Friendship, struggles and finally dealing with some heavy emotions.
I was a bit disappointed in the romance aspect, Amy and Roger are cute but I never really felt a spark, I think there fantastic friends but couldn’t connect with the “love” aspect.
Also did I mention the awesome food? I want to go to america to try all this wonderful junk food and Dinner Food!
Oh and the really cute boys! I loved all the side characters, they had a distinct roll in the story line and added so much to Amy learning to heal.
So to conclude
- Road trip Check
- Great Characters Check
- Awesome stop overs and picture Check
- A fun friendship Check
- Character growth Check
I plan on reading a lot more of Morgan Matson’s writing very soon and can’t wait to dive into her next book 🙂
Happy Humpday people! What are you currently reading? I’ve just Started Me Before You by JoJo Moyes and I’m excited to see if it lives up to all the hype.
