Road Trip with Max and His Mom is the second installment in a new series by Linda Urban. The first book was Weekends with Max and his Dad. Max’s parents are divorced, but divorce is not the main focus of the stories. Max’s mom wants to take Max on a road trip to a family reunion at an amusement park. In addition to planning for the trip, Max is also preparing for a school assignment to portray his favorite explorer and worrying about leaving his dad behind on their regular weekend. Max compares explorer, Ernest Shackleton’s adventures to his own, such as riding the gigantic roller coaster and exploring the amusement park with his cousins. This realistic family story is filled with heart and lots of laughs.
