You really can't do much better than Joan Bauer for a readable, likable, realistic novel. Her characters are so well done, the reader gets a sense of every personality without long, dull, descriptive passages. And they (the characters) grow in believable ways throughout the book - not too much, but definitely. Her writing is not morally heavy-handed, either.

In _Rules of the Road_, Jenna Boller escapes from the complications of her life in Chicago by being hired as the driver for rich Mrs. Madeline Gladstone. As they cross the country from Illinois to Texas, both of them learn about how to make it through road trips and through life.
