Road Trip!

In just a few short hours I’ll be packing up my car for a road trip to my home town for a visit.  I’m excited, but there is still so much to do.
When planning a road trip you have to remember so much.  You have to pack the map or the GPS, you have to remember your tooth-brush, and most importantly you have to plan some entertainment.  I’ve been thinking of tunes to load onto my iPod and books to read for weeks.

They say “Getting There Is Half the Fun” and I couldn’t agree more. And getting there is so much better when you have your favorite music and books along for the ride.  With summer coming, I bet I’m not the only one with a road trip on the horizon, so check out this list for inspiration.


Sixteen year old Bridgette is a member of a family of Travelers or Gypsies who sometimes resort to theft and dishonesty to make their way in the world.  Bridgette feels trapped by this type of life but fears stepping away from her family for a more conventional life of school and friends.



After her free-spirited Aunt Peg’s death, Ginny receives a plane ticket to Europe.  Thus begins a mysterious journey.  Ginny is guided by Peg’s European friends and also 13 letters written before just before her aunt died.





After a traumatic event kicks off this story its main characters, Jordy a homeless, gay teen and Chloe an abused and homeless girl set off on a healing cross-country adventure.  At the start of the book neither of them have anyone to lean on, but through their friendship they create a lasting family in each other.



After his most recent dumping by a girl named Katherine (all of his girlfriends have had the same name) and anxiety over not living up to his genius reputation post high school, Colin is depressed.  So his best friend Hassan decides the best way to cheer him up is an epic, rambling road trip.   The journey ends in Tennessee with a girl, who isn’t named Katherine.


Happy Trails,
Brooke
