#BookReview of Drive Me Crazy by @TerraMcVoy


Drive Me Crazy
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Recommended Age: Childrens
Genre: Contemporary
About the Book: Buckle up…

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.

Lana thinks a summer road trip sounds like fun, but the backseat is a crowded place for two tween 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.






About the Author: 
I have been reading and writing, basically, ever since I learned how to, and everything I've done has pretty much been connected to those two things. I went to college at a small, fantastic school (with a super writing program) called St. Andrews Presbyterian College. I got my Master's degree in Creative Writing from Florida State. I have worked as an event coordinator at a major chain bookstore; as a freelance writer; a composition instructor; an editorial assistant at an NYC publisher; as manager of an independent children's bookstore, in Decatur, GA, Little Shop of Stories (where I still work as a bookseller); and as Program Director of the AJC Decatur Book Festival.


Do I Recommend this book? Yes!

Notes and Opinions: This book was AMAZING! It speaks in a language that middle graders will be able to relate to. It teaches a lesson about how to communicate with others. It's told in alternating chapters from Lana and Cassie’s viewpoints. Cassie has become a kind of shallow selfish girl to be like the new friends she has just made, but she is constantly questioning herself and her choices. Lana chooses to focus on joy, on being real and trying to have as much fun as she can. I was hooked from the start. I recommend this book for all middle schoolers!
