I happened to read several "road trip" stories around the same time. This one was one of the more unlikely adventures, but it was fun to read. The entertaining characters and crazy stuff that happens could make it a good booktalk, but I don't think it's Newbery material.

I loved the beginning of the book but as I read further I didn't seem to have enough "willing suspension of disbelief" to accept some of the choices made! I don't think this is a contender.
