I loved this book it was really good, the characters were good, the writing was good, the plot was good. So why can’t I bring myself to give it five stars. I really don’t know. It is probably because there were a few small things that irked me, okay, this is going to sound really bad, but I think it dropped a star because of the romance. Actually, that doesn't sound so bad. Sure, the characters were good and they all had problems they were recovering from, but when I picked up this book I was expecting a real romance. Sure, it was there, but it didn’t really start until around the last 30 pages, sure we had Amy's hidden attraction to Roger, and we knew they would end up together, but not much more.

No nothing like that happened, but I liked the picture. It's so cute :)

In saying that, the book was still good, but it was more about a girl getting over the death of her father by travelling around the country. Yep that’s basically the book in a nutshell. A very basic nutshell, with no detail. At all.

Oooh yeah. This is what made this book different from other road trip books I have read. This book made you feel like you were on the trip, I think part of this was the fact that throughout the book we got pictures, receipts and playlists (of what was being played, all very interesting. I went and downloaded the music after reading it).

This really made me feel as if I were on the trip it also made me really want to go on a road trip. I think my friends wanted to kill me by the end of the day,

I was planning to hitchhike on a whale to America (I live in Australia, no where to road trip), and following the path Amy and Roger took. If I did it, I would name the trip ‘Sita + Tegan + Kaushalya’s un-epic followed detour of America, and their funny accents ;)’ Yes, the book was quite inspirational.

I would recommend this book to any one looking for a good read, it is good. Very inspiring...Yep, hitchhiking to America on a whale to carry out a road trip. What books can make me do ;).

Lillith I loved your review and believe that this has been a recommendation (one of the first) to make me read a road trip book. I've never read one and I like your review mostly cause you are controversial like me. You like it but then u show the disadvantages! ive it to us straight girl! :D

Crystal Bevan Yeah, there is nowhere to road trip in Australia. haha
