Amy's father dies in a car accident, and Amy's mother moves across the country to try and start over again. She asks Amy to drive the car to her, but Amy hasn't driven since the accident. And now we meet Roger, a family friend who has agreed to drive the car and Amy across the country. Roger and Amy decide to deviate from Amy's mother's driving plans and take an Epic Detour. Along the way, they become friends and face different ghosts from their pasts.
Quite a fun book with a bit of depth as well! I would not recommend this for my junior readers out there as there is some Mature Content.
