Dad and Ben haven’t been getting along recently and Dad hopes a road trip to rescue a border collie will help them reconnect. Having caught on to Dad’s plan, Ben invites his thuggish buddy, Theo. The family dog, Atticus, comes along, too and the story is told by Ben and Atticus. When their truck breaks down, they commandeer an old school bus, along with its mechanic, Gus. Next, they pick up Mia, a waitress escaping a tense situation. Only sharp-eyed Atticus realizes Theo is on the run, and someone is following them.

    " I hate to admit that this is my first Gary Paulsen book. Road Trip is interesting. My 11-yr-old read it first and when I asked her what it was about, she had a hard time telling me. Now I know why. It's mish-mash of crazy people and events over two days as a father and son hit the road to rescue a border collie pup from a dog pound. It's very short, only 114 pages but a lot is crammed in there. What I liked best about it is the voice of 14-yr-old Ben. I was seeing the world through a teenager's perspective and it was eye-opening. A quick, fun read that I'm sure fans of Paulsen will enjoy. "

    " I am a big fan of Gary Paulsen. I usually really enjoy his books. This one was good, but not as good as others I've read. It is simple and enjoyable. I love the parts that are from the dog's point of view. :) It would be a good, easy read when you don't feel like a heavy read. "

    " Road Trip is a light adventure story bringing a cast of quirky characters, a dog together and a bus on a quest to rescue border collie pup. This is a new Paulsen father/son collaboration. "
