The first few chapters were hilarious and the idea of a road trip was great. I just feel that the main character isn't able to have proper relationships with anybody, and is not relatable at all.

After Rosie accidentally sets fire to her ex’s car, her parents send her on a road trip with a trusted family friend and his two cronies to straighten her out. Along the way she works through her anger and grief and falls in love again. A lighthearted, funny book—but nothing spectacular, ubiquitously romantic, and honestly the premise is unrealistic. It was fun to read, but I’d hesitate to call it quality.
