What are your favorite YA road trip books?

If I wanted to go on a road trip without actually leaving my apartment, the best way to do that is to read a road trip book! Have you read many YA books where a road trip takes place? If so, I want to know which ones are your favorites!

Not only do I want to know which books are your favorite, but also where they go on said road trip (at least the starting and ending points) so I can create a super awesome infographic made up of your recommendations!

    Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson! They start out in Yosemite in California and end up in Connecticut. It’s a great road trip book!

    I loved The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. 4 teens go on a road trip around the east coast, and they are running from the police, and it is epic

    I thought I didn’t like road trip books, but then I read Jerk, California (by Jonathon Friesen) and I completely changed my mind. It blew my mind. I think it starts somewhere in the Mid-West, but the main character and one other make their way state by state to California.

    The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken for sure! They travel most of East Coast in book one and end on the West Coast in book two.

    The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour was an awesome book about a band’s road trip the summer before college when they’ll all split up.

    Paper Towns by John Green is a good road trip book! Four best friends go on a road trip from Florida to New York to find their missing friend. It is one of my favorite books! :)

    An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. A child genius and his best friend go on a road trip and end up spending the summer in a small town in Tennessee that makes tampon strings. :) The main character Colin goes in search of the perfect equation to predict how any relationship’s outcome, named after the fact that he’s only ever dated and been dumped by Katherines. It’s my favorite John Green book so far.
