Friday Finds May 14, '10

Hi Guys,

I haven't done Friday Finds in AGES. It's hosted by Should Be Reading.

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Goodreads Description:

"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."

After hearing a rave review from And Anything Bookish, I had to want to read this. It sounds adorable and I love the cover.

Emma Out!

  1. I've seen this one around a bit - the non-traditional parts of the narrative sound interesting! My finds this week are here.
