Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour – Morgan Matson

After Amy’s father dies in a car accident, her brother is sent to rehab and her mom moves to Connecticut, leaving Amy alone in California. When Amy graduates, her mom tells her to bring the family car to their new home. Amy doesn’t drive, so her mom recruits Roger, whom Amy hasn’t seen since they were little kids. Her mom’s boring 3-day itinerary isn’t going to cut it, so they embark an epic detour that takes them to Yellowstone Park, a spooky highway, the home of the Kentucky Derby, and Graceland. By the end of the trip, they’ve overcome their individual heartbreaks and they might even become more than road trip buddies… I really enjoyed this book. It’s cool that it includes actual photos and things like postcards and receipts, as well as Amy’s handwritten journal. I also loved all of the descriptions of the different burger joints they visited. (submitted by GH)
