1st Ever Bookclub Announcement

Hello lovely readers,

We'd love to interact more with you and, after a lot of brainstorming, we decided to start a Getting Lost In Words Bookclub!!! Please hold your excitement until the end of the post ;). How it's going to work is, every once in a while, we're all going to pick a book and read it. Then, instead of reviewing it, we're going to open up a forum post and have a bookclub-like conversation where we talk about our thoughts, feelings, etc. about the book. But not just us. We want to hear what you think too! Sounds like fun, right?

Our first Getting Lost In Words Bookclub Book is (drum roll please) 
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson.
From the author - Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn't seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she's coming to terms with her father's death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

Here's the Forum Post. Happy reading.
