Hit the Road

Hit the Road

by Caroline B. Cooney

Delacorte Press, 2006

This book is my life – except that it’s funny.

Teenage drivers, assisted living, the importance of cell phones, well-meaning adult children and the resentment of their aging parents, memory/vision/hearing loss, powdering noses, rain hats and first crushes. I suspect people who aren’t dealing with these issues will also find Hit the Road hilarious.

I had some quibbles with the plot. The protagonist’s boyfriend solves the problem for her, and this is another novel where the antagonist spills his guts in an unlikely confession at the end. That aside, I recommend it
