The Potential Hazardss of Hester Day: A Novel in 1400 Miles by Mercedes Helnwein
Thanks to the public library in Strongsville and their great display of road trip books, we picked up this gem before heading to Alabama for the annual "dead author" Lackey road trip. I read the book aloud as David drove and it was a hoot. Hester graduates from high school, impulsively marries the odd guy she has met in the public library, kidnaps her nephew and heads across country in an RV. Perfect road trip reading. Hester has the voice and gumption of Juno. We loved this book.
