Why We Took the Car

By Wolfgang HerrndorfWhy We Took the Car

This is one of the best books for young adults I’ve read ever (sorry Jasper Jones). Its definitely for a more mature reader so don’t be put off by the age of the central characters (fourteen). Its one of those books I particularly enjoy because they encompass everything – like life.

There were moments of real beauty in this book – but don’t let that put you off! Its funny too; a great road trip and coming of age story with some interesting other characters along the way.
