What an amazing book.
Amy's father recently died in an accident. Her whole life has changed. Her brother who always had problems with drugs is even worse now. Her mother decided to move the family across the state. And the guilt and grief are impossible to get rid of.
And now her mother is saying that she can't fly to their new home, but drive. But since she refused to sit behind the wheel, she has a companion who will drive. Roger.
And that is how their epic journey began.
I adore both Amy and Roger. During the trip Amy came to terms with her father's death and Roger, as well as the freedom, had a lot to do with that.
I love how they became friends first, slowly and cautiously, because they are both hurting. How the secrets were revealed and how they learned everything that matters about each other.
I know I'm repeating myself, but the book is truly amazing. I was on a roller-coaster of emotions, feeling what Amy did, from grief to love. I love it. :-)
