I really loved listening to this story. I found that anytime I had a minute I turned it on. The story is beautifully told and quite fun. It's funny, witty but at times quite heartbreaking. Made me want to go on my own epic detour. If you're a fan of YA romance this is the book for you, it is quite good.
Just as good!
Both Amy and Roger are amazing characters. They start off as the typical teenagers, but their story lines go so much more in depth and you can't help but fall in love with them.
My favorite scene is probably the one with them sleeping in the Walmart parking lot. It's funny but cute at the same time.

LOVE THIS BOOK! I would definitely read it over and over!
I love to read!
The characters drew me in right from the beginning. I enjoyed the detour and the story all the way through to the end! The narrator did a great job too.
Happiness is a good book!
I got this because it was in my price range. I wasn't expecting to love it. I was drawn into the story fast! I loved the twists and unexpectedness of the story. The characters were wonderfully thought out and the ending wasn't tired! I loved all this book had to offer!!
I am a library media specialist at a middle/high school. I love classics, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, YA books (especially dystopias!) and picture books.
Just finished this and it was a nice bit of escapism- a good summertime read. It definitely had me thinking about the road trips in my past- complete with music, snacks and highway. I recommend this to anyone needing to getaway from the day to day!
This book is has amazing writing. The character arches and flawless, the personalities are real, and the story is awesome. I have read this book several times and each time I feel like I am discovering American again with Roger and Amy!
The performance is not distracting. I love when I can forget about the persons voice and get sucked into the story.
The transformation and growth you see in both main characters is awesome.
If you love road trips this book will make you crazy to join them on their detour across America
Always busy - always in the car.
The travel details - the foods, histories and creation of the landscapes. And the Characters: Amy - Broken, Roger - Feeling, and the supporting cast of Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien that all gave extra heart to this story.
Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien - love them all and they are all important to this story.
The story is is the perfect rite of passage book.
The scene when Amy goes back to the golf course and annouces that her father is dead.
I like the book because I can really see the personality of each character and the was the story unfolds. I didn't want it to end, and wanted to see when else this story would take me, but it had to and it ended well.
