Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

I've never known what an actual road trip is like, but now i know! Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is really fun and i had an epic time reading it. Everything felt more realistic to me with all those pictures, maps, travel scrapbook, and playlists though I've never heard any of those songs in my whole life, so now I'm wondering what planet do I live in. It's not one of those you'll expect to have a big and exciting plot. I just found the story cute, light, and relaxing. Because it's like having a road trip! I admired how the characters changed because of it, and how thay help each other throughout the story. Though i cannot give it full 5 stars because of the story's simplicity and the open ending which left me thinking, "What happened after that?," and that's the least thing I wanted from a novel.

But overall, it was okay. It has a simple and satisfying story. It's about taking risks, not letting your past hinder your present, and doing new things for a change. It's alright to open yourself to others and let them in, because sometimes these decisions will make you a better person and make everything worthwhile.

I give this 4/5 stars!
