“Tomorrow will be better.”
“But what if it’s not?” I asked.
“Then you say it again tomorrow. Because it might be. You never know, right?”


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.


4/5 Stars to Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson


Now this book I love. It wasn’t heavy on romance and the development of the characters were delivered well. It was beautiful and touching. From the title alone, you can deduce that this book is going to be a roadtrip type of story. And as per usual, it begins with two acquaintances embarking on a journey together. It tells a story of a girl on the road to self-discovery as she learns to how to forgive and move on, and finally taking the first step to a new beginning. Through all this, she finds an unlikely friendship with a boy she never really thought of much before. I like that it didn’t dwell much on the romantic aspect of the plot. It’s full or moral lessons for teens.  The ending left me hanging but it was just the perfect conclusion to Amy and Roger’s story. Wonderful read.
