The only reason I did not DNF this book was because I liked
the format and the writing style But the overarching feeling I had while format and the writing style But the overarching feeling I had while this book was three things First I hate the names he gave them what kind of name is Stiggy Second why was this written Third how is this character not an irredeemable jerk Beyond the plodding plot and nonsensical ndpoint the story was a generic angsty White boy who cannot understand that he is the problem It included so many problematic lements that were never properly

S all about him and
others do for him other characters lacked any development or personality probably because all that matters is StiggyIf you are going to write a story about a problematic character you need to show how he she transformed throughout the book It seems likeWhat Others Do For Him

for providing me with an arc of thisproviding me with an ARC of this 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 Adventurous little road trip full of figuring out life Great YA Read Roadtripped by Pete Hautman is about a crazy kid named Stiggy He doesn t have the best life but decides to take a crazy trip to find his The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right ex girlfriend She decided to ghost him and moving so he wants to figure out why This story takes a ton of turns where you meet a crazy amount of characters Each one crazier than the next This wasn t one of my favorites but it wasn t the worst This is a story of a teenage boy on a road trip through Minnesota The trip comes about after his father s suicide and after his girlfriend has dumped him I didn t find anything insightful in this book The main character was unlikable and I wasn tven routing for him to change The road trip had no destination no motive he just drove around aimlessly As for plot nothing did happen in this story For a half the book we were along for a frankly boring road trip and for another half flashbacks to what lead him going on this trip in the first place I give this book two stars because I did finish it and the Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling ending was well deserved. Problem is life on his own isn’txactly what he Monsieur Pain expected and soonnough he finds himself at a crossroads keep running from his demons or let them hitch a ride back home with him. .
