Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour
Author: Morgan Matson
Genre: Contemporary/”Finding Yourself”
Summary: Amy is a shy girl now a days, she barely talks to anyone outside of her family. Her mother in Connecticut while she is in California. She now needs to go cross-country to go move with her mom. She is riding with this guy named Roger, who is hard to drive with because in Amy’s words ” he is super cute” The only reason that Roger even is driving with Amy is because he needs to visit his ex-girlfriend. Amy’s mother plans a little schedule and expects Amy to be home in 4 days. Instead of listening to her mom she takes a little detour. This story is a finding yourself type of story and it is definitely worth the read. You see a lot of progress with out characters and you will love every single one of them (maybe not the ex-girlfriends though).
My Review: *spoiler-free* I really enjoyed this book. At first I though there was going to be a whole of romance in this story but there is very little of that. There is enough romance to enjoy yourself, but the story is mainly about finding your true self. Through out this story you see a lot of character build-up, with every single of the character. This is exactly what some books are lacking now a days. With this book you will truly understand each and every single one of the characters by the time you finish this book. Even though it wasn’t a long read, it was not a short read. Its a great book, especially for people just starting to explore the contemporary world of books. *spoiler-filled*One part of the book that I absolutely loved was when they were at Roger’s ex-girlfriends house, and they were done talking. His ex was walking towards Amy and Roger then she said ” Is that her?” After I read that sentence I was on cloud nine. I mean Roger talked about her when he was supposed to be talking with his ex about their relationship so it must mean that he likes her right? And what about that kiss after they got the ice creams. It was good that after he said wait, she didn’t. She just kept doing it. Most characters in a book will become embarrassed about it after words then never talk to the boy again. I was amazing and I recommend it to everyone, if your just starting out or if your just obsessed with books like me.
