Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Sweet, fun and sometimes heartbreaking"

    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.

    "Great book! I highly recommend it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour to be better than the print version?

    Just as good!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is probably the one with them sleeping in the Walmart parking lot. It's funny but cute at the same time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "The greatest adventures are usually the ones you didn't plan for."


    Any additional comments?

    LOVE THIS BOOK! I would definitely read it over and over!

    "Great story!"

    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.

    "Unexpected awesome!"

    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.

    "Light summer YA read"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "I love this book"
    What did you love best about Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour?

    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!


    What about Suzy Jackson’s performance did you like?

    The performance is not distracting. I love when I can forget about the persons voice and get sucked into the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The transformation and growth you see in both main characters is awesome.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love road trips this book will make you crazy to join them on their detour across America

    Story
    "This is a great book - it is a must read."
    What did you love best about Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien - love them all and they are all important to this story.


    What does Suzy Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The story is is the perfect rite of passage book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene when Amy goes back to the golf course and annouces that her father is dead.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
