ZigZag by Ellen Wittlinger

() Centers around a 17-year-old country girl, Robin, who’s madly in love with her boyfriend of two-years, Chris. Unfortunately, her boyfriend is going off to college next year and is now unexpectedly spending ‘their last summer together’ in Rome. Robin thinks she will perish without Chris, but instead the opposite proves true as she cares for her cousins’ and aunt’s post-tragedy emotions on a long and testing road trip across the country. Surprising events occur that lead to Robin eventually finding herself, her ability to survive and adapt, and her love for life.
It’s a decent read with a common lesson found in young adult books. It’s good for individual empowerment and bad for the romantics.
