Make It A Movie Monday is hosted by Jenna @ Making The Grade. It's a place to talk about the books we wish would be made into a movie and if we were making the movie, how would we do it!
My pick for this week is:
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
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.
This is one epic road trip book! Amy and Roger are fantastic characters and all of the places the see and things they do would make an excellent feature film!
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour Dream Cast:
Amy - Shelley Hennig - Actress (The Secret Circle )
She is so good at portraying a wide range of emotions, and given all of the ups and downs Amy goes through, I think she would be such a good fit. Plus, she's so darn adorable :0)
Roger - Robbie Amell - Actor (Revenge, True Jackson, VP )
This pick is a little more shallow...haha. I absolutely adore his smile and when I see him I think, College Guy. He always does a great job playing the nice guy, too :0)
Would you take a road trip with this Amy & Roger? Who would you choose?
