Thanks to Leanne and Natalie for recommending this.
Love it! Not only do I love the characters, but this book makes me want to take a drive in a crappy car across the US, eat at diners, stay in cheap hotels, listen to cool music and have adventures. And possibly accidentally steal clothes from Goodwill...
I love the laugh out loud moments in this. The exchanges between Amal and TJ are sometimes hilarious, and sometimes poignant. The illustrations are mostly black and white but the occasional full page coloured illustration (usually a sunrise or a landscape) is breathtaking.
And TJ...guys, what's going on with TJ? He's a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in some dreadlocks, right?
More pages, please!!!
