Staff Reviews

Terra Elan McVoy's "Drive Me Crazy" burns bright with emotion, honesty, and some serious heart! So much insight to the lives of two very different young women, both of whom are learning simultaneously (through different routes) what "friendship" and "strength" really mean.

— Will


A tween rivalry-turned-friendship story bursting with humor and heart—perfect for fans of Lisa Graff and Lynda Mullaly Hunt.

Lana and Cassie have met only once before, at the wedding of Lana’s Grandpa Howe and Cassie’s Grandma Tess two months ago. The two girls couldn’t be more different, and they didn’t exactly hit it off—but they’re about to spend an entire week together for their grandparents’ honeymoon, road-tripping from California to Maine in the backseat of a Subaru.

It’s going to be a disaster.

Told in alternating chapters between Cassie and Lana, Drive Me Crazy shows that even though friendship can be a bumpy road, it just might change your life for the better.

Praise For…

“A trek across the continent evolves into a journey of personal growth in this affecting book.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Two very different girls in a car together with show tunes and wacky pit stops plus lots of desert make for a pretty sweet friendship story. Steer this towards fans of Lisa Graff’s Umbrella Summer and those drawn to books with plenty of heart.”

“A lighthearted road trip story with a lot of middle school appeal.”
