A quick read and well written. While I appreciate that Kristin Elizabeth Clark is the parent of trans child, and she is trying to create more representation in YA for trans kids, it still felt a little...stilted to me? Not as natural as "George", for example, which was written by a NB author. Maybe the format had something to do with this too, as Clark wrote "Freakboy" was absolutely beautiful and it was a novel in verse.

Jess, Chunk, and The Road Trip to Infinity by Kristin Elizabeth Clark, is a funny novel about friendship, family and identity. The book is not that much interesting as I thought it would be.
JESS, CHUNK, AND THE ROAD TRIP TO INFINITY is a book about Jess. She was a boy named Jeremy. She was going to Chicago with her best friend Chunk after high school graduation. On the way, they met some other people too and visited other sites too. The whole story is about their trip to Chicago. They were going to the wedding of Jess’s father who was marrying to Jess’s mom’s best friend.
I didn’t like this book that much. It was not an interesting book for me. I didn’t really enjoyed reading it.

The plot of the novel revolves around their trip to Chicago. It is a fine book.
I didn’t like this book that much, but may be other readers do like. Everyone has his/her own opinion. My rating for this book is: RECOMMENDED.

I love this lovable story of a transgender teen trying to stick it to her dad, and ends up learning a lot about herself, her family, and her friends. There is definitely an overabundance of teen angst and drama, but I think you can look past that knowing that Jess is going through a lot, and her life is, indeed, dramatic.
