Amy & Roger's
Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. But since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip. . .and has plenty of baggage of his own. But as they drive, Amy finds that the people you least expected may turn out to be the ones you need the most—and that sometimes you have to get lost in order to find your way home.
"One of the most touching, irresistible, and feel-good road trips I've been on in a long, long while. Amy & Roger is a book to love."
— Deb Caletti, National Book Award Finalist
