Drive Me Crazy
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Reading Level: Middle Grade
Friendship can be a bumpy road.
Lana and Cassie have met only once before, at the wedding of Lana’s Grandpa Howe and Cassie’s Grandma Tess two months ago. They didn’t exactly hit it off—in fact, depending on who you ask, that first meeting was either an embarrassment or a disaster—but they’re about to spend an entire week together, just the two of them and their honeymooning grandparents, road-tripping in Cassie’s grandmother’s Subaru.
"The messages of true friendship and communication will resonate with many readers… Despite some heavy topics, this is a lighthearted road trip story with a lot of middle school appeal." — School Library Journal
Lana thinks a summer road trip sounds like fun, but the backseat is a crowded place for two twelve-year-old girls with two huge secrets to hide, and this bumpy road to friendship is full of unexpected twists and turns. Like it or not, they’re in this together, full speed ahead on the adventure of a lifetime.
"McVoy's tale examines the nature of friendship…[and] highlights the pressure and intensity of middle school social issues." — Kirkus
"Two very different girls in a car together with show tunes and wacky pit stops plus lots of dessert make for a pretty sweet friendship story." — Booklist
"I loved this book very much and can't wait for it to come out so my friends can read it too." — Nora Colussy-Estes, Little Shop of Stories Galley Club member
“From the cover picture, I thought this would be a girly book. It is about two girls and their families, but it is so much more than that." — Muir & Jenny, IndieNext
