An ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Readers, Shortlisted for the Waterstone's Book Prize and a Publisher's Weekly "Flying Start" book Amy Curry's year sucks. And it's not getting any better. Her mother has decided to move, so somehow Amy has to get their car from California to the East Coast. There's just one problem: since her father's death Amy hasn't been able to get behind the wheel of a car. Enter Roger, the son of a family friend, who turns out to be funny, nice . . . and unexpectedly cute. But Roger's plans involve a more "scenic" route than just driving from A to B, so suddenly Amy finds herself on the road trip of a lifetime. And, as she grows closer to Roger, Amy starts to realise that sometimes you have to get lost to find your way home. . . Praise for Amy & Roger's Epic Detour 'One of the most touching, irresistible, and feel-good road trips I've been on in a long, long while. Amy & Roger is a book to love.' Deb Caletti, National Book Award Finalist 'A near-perfect summer read that should leave readers with a thirst for travel and romance.' Publishers Weekly, Starred Review 'This entertaining and thoughtful summertime road trip serves up slices of America with a big scoop of romance on the side.' Kirkus Reviews 'A classic literary road trip is what Matson delivers in high style…if all road trips were like this, nobody'd ever stay home.' BCCB 'An emotionally rewarding road novel.' School Library Journal
