First published in 2011, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is the debut novel of Young Adult author Morgan Matson. It centres around the narrating character, Amelia Curry, and her unwilling road-trip from California to Connecticut to get mother’s car to their new home. Unfortunately, Amy’s father had not long passed away from injuries sustained in a car accident so Amy is not keen to get behind the wheel too soon. Enter Roger Sullivan: an old family friend who is given the task by their mothers to drive Amy all the way across the country.
This book absolutely exceeded my expectations.
