After her father dies, Amy's brother leaves for rehab and her mother relocates the family from California to Connecticut. While Amy's mother is readying their new home in Connecticut, Amy and the car are in California. Since her father's death, however, Amy can't bring herself to get behind the wheel, so Roger, a family friend, agrees to drive the car and Amy to Connecticut. Amy's mother carefully planned the travel itinerary--booking hotel reservations and mapping out routes between destination cities--but Amy and Roger find themselves winding through America at their own pace, conquering fears, making friends, taking chances, and coming to terms with their decisions. Well-written, emotional, funny, charming, and real, this book is the perfect travel companion.
