#75: Amy & Roger's Epic Detour - Morgan Matson

Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her dad recently died in a car accident, and her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut—just in time for Amy’s senior year. To escape from it all, Amy embarks on a road trip, driving cross-country from the home she’s always known toward her new life. Joining her is Roger, the son of Amy’s mother’s old friend. Amy hasn’t seen him in years, but her feelings for Roger develop as the miles roll by…. 

Told in traditional narrative as well as through a unique visual format that incorporates scraps from the road, this is the story of one teen’s journey to find herself.

AUTHOR BIO:
Morgan Matson formerly worked as a teen book editor. Morgan is a lover of roadtrips, having crossed the USA three times ... so far, and a huge music fan, both passions that fed into her first YA novel Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. When not writing, she drinks far too much coffee, watches old movies, and plans out her next journey. She lives in California.


REVIEW:
Epic detour, and epic story!
This book will have you wanting to let yourself go, expand your own horizons, and be spontaneous. Especially if an unplanned journey could become the time of your life. The thing is, you never know unless you let go. Amy and Roger learned all about that lesson, specifically Amy.
Such a bittersweet tale. Tragic events always seem to form massive events in our lives, changing us. This story was no different and showed just that. It also showed the power of love and healing. More steps that we all have to walk in life. This story seems to make those steps poignant.
I NEED to know if Amy and Roger continue on. There was a perfect ending, it all closed up nicely. Still, there was a lot left open just enough to give so much more. And I want more. Lots would be an understatement.
This book is perfect for people who love a sense of adventure. It will surely entice you right to the very end.

5/5

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
