Amy Curry is having a terrible year. Her mother has decided to move across the country and needs Amy to get their car from California to Connecticut. There's just one small problem: Since her dad died this past spring, Amy hasn't been able to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger, the nineteen-year-old son of an old family friend, who turns out to be unexpectedly cute... and dealing with some baggage of his own.
Meeting new people and coming to terms with her father's death were not what Amy had planned on this trip. And traveling the Loneliest Road in America, seeing the Colorado Mountains, crossing the Kansas plains, and visiting diners, dingy motels and Graceland were definitely not on the itinerary. But as they drive, Amy finds that the people you least expected are the ones you may need the most - and that sometimes you may need to get lost in order to find your way home.

“Saying goodbye is basically an invitation not to see that person again. It's making it okay for that to be the last conversation you have. So if you don't say it--if you leave the conversation open--it means you'll have to see them again.”Roger
“If you have a gift for something, I think it's wrong not to work at it, just because it gets hard, or because you're scared.”Mr. Curry

“When you're on a road trip, life is all about the detours...”
“Mistakes become regrets.”
“Thinking of all the lyrics that had just always been part of my life, all the songs i'd known without even remembering learning them.”
