Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson--- two kids driving from California to Connecticut take several detours along the way and in the process learn about each other and themselves. It is every bit as good as the others reviewers have said.
I'm listening to:
Blink and Caution by Tim Wynne-Jones---"Blink and Caution are two teenage runaways in Toronto. Blink is getting by day to day by stealing breakfast leftovers from room-service trays in a fancy hotel when he accidentally observes a faked kidnapping of a wealthy CEO. Caution is on the run from an abusive and possessive drug-dealer boyfriend when she meets Blink."
I just recently finished:
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen--- Auden spends the summer before her Freshman year of college with her father and his new wife. Along the way she makes good friends, tries doing things she's never done before, and learns to ride a bike. Classic Dessen.
I hope to get to next:
The Berlin Boxing Club by Robert Sharenow---"Max Schmeling, champion boxer and German national hero, makes a deal with Karl's father to give Karl boxing lessons, Karl sees it as the perfect chance to reinvent himself. A skilled cartoonist, Karl has never had an interest in boxing, but as Max becomes the mentor Karl never had, Karl soon finds both his boxing skills and his art flourishing. But when Nazi violence against Jews escalates, Karl must take on a new role: protector of his family."
