This was an easy read, but I don't think it was as amazing as everyone else does. The story was cute, but it just wasn't all that entertaining. An ok book, just not what I was expecting and the ending was a little abrupt. ( )

Dos jóvenes se ven envueltos en un viaje donde descubrirán el camino a la sanación emocional, complementado con una genial banda sonora que será, a la vez, protagonista de la historia. ( )

It's actually 4.5 stars. If the book didn't end so abruptly, I would say easily 5 stars but this book was amazing still. Review will be up this week! ( )

I'm torn on how to rate this one - I didn't think it was as good as SYBG as the characters were less well-realised, but when it was good, it was very good.

Also... ROGER? Someone else needs to name this author's male characters. ( )

I absolutely love this novel. It is such a cute love story, and a fantastic summer read. I read it last summer, and it quickly became my favorite book that i read that summer (and i read a lot of books). Matson does a perfect job of engaging the reader with her love story and including things that readers can identify with such as death, families falling apart, and sibling relationships. I applaud Matson for her work with this novel, and look forward to reading her other novels soon. ( )

I sat on the front steps of my house and watched the beige Subaru station wagon swing too quickly around the cul-de-sac.

Book description
Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn't seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she's coming to terms with her father's death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.
