How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: May 7, 2013

Forget freedom of the road, Rosie wants to hitchhike home and win back her ex. But her determination starts to dwindle with each passing mile. Because Rosie’s spark of anger? It may have just ignited a romance with someone new…

  4. I've never read a book about a road trip before, maybe I should give this one a try considering how many people seem to love books about road trips and I don't read enough contemporaries.

  5. I have this one coming up for review soon. I can't wait!! I love road trips!!! :) Great pick! :)
