Ed him and skipped town What does he have left to stick around for? Armed with his mom’s credit card and a tourist map of Great River Road Stiggy sets off in his dad’s carThe onl Thanks so much to Simon and Schuster and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC of this book long sigh I really thought this was going somewhere I really really did Road Tripped follows Stiggy your average and I mean REALLY average teenage boy on a seemingly aimless trip through the American Midwest The trip comes about after his father's suicide which has disrupted his relationship with his mother and after his girlfriend has moved away and not bothered to contact him at all Now I think it's worth noting that I went into this fully expecting to not see a ton of plot I expected this to be mostly introspective and focus on character development and Stiggy coming to terms with all that had happened But OH MAN I was so bored Not only does nothing happen in this story which is fine but all of the characters are either INCREDIBLY unlikable or the women mostly have absolutely no substance I couldn't keep any of them straight because they all had no discernible personality and generally just sucked as people Also the way everyone including Stiggy talks about women is justgross By the time I had finished the story I felt like there was no point I suppose Stiggy was a little bit self aware but not enough for me to really consider it development Also it's worth noting that this is told in this non linear way that jumps back and forth between the past and the present but I found it generally confusing to tell these two timelines apart because nothing was happening in either time line I am definitely in the minority in not liking this book but the whole thing just felt so Bro y to me in the same way Wildman felt Just not my jam apparently Trigger and Content Warnings Suicide death of a parent mentions of depression and other mental illness attempted rapesexual assault I think there might have been underage drinking but I honestly can't remember and I lost my notes a weird incest comment that I still can't tell whether or not it was a joke????
Read Road Tripped
Y problem is life on his own isn’t exactly what he expected and soon enough he finds himself at a crossroads keep running from his demons or let them hitch a ride back home with hi Road Tripped is a complex story of suicide anger and self discovery The plot is told not in a linear seuence but rather with plenty of flashback scenes mixed in with the presentStiggy’s father has recently died and he is trying to move on from that incident Yet he also finds himself struggling in school keeping a civil relationship with his mother and retaining friends Within a short time Stiggy can no longer stand being in his home town and decides to leaveHowever this isn’t just a somber tale I found myself laughing at many of Stiggy’s misfortunes and the absurd characters he met in his journey Coincidentally I happened to take this novel on my vacation and perhaps that is why I enjoyed it so much I read so much of this book in the car or in the cabin that it almost felt as though I were taking this trip with the main characterReading other reviews some complained that the plot felt misguided but I uite enjoyed it At only seventeen years old the main character is alone and confused with nowhere to really go He hadn’t thought out his exodus nearly enough before embarking so yes he does wander a bitBut for me it was about how the story was told and the contents of it that I loved Really the only disappointment came at the ending I wanted a stronger conclusion a finale to this grand tale Instead the story wrapped up far too uickly and Stiggy just sort of walked off sceneRead my full review at
