The question mark in the title should've been a clue that this book is not a happy Route 66 information/adventure book. Rather, it is a book about an immigrant artist who sees the injustice in Route 66 and America.

I like the idea of the book, the comic style layout, and the color drawings. The book, however lacks content or experiences supporting her claims. Most of the people she met are her friends dotted across the country. The attractions along Route 66 were not highlighted because that was not the premise of the book.

The disappointing thing is this book lacks setting (non-existent Route 66 information), character build-up, conflict (other than her tireless complaints), and a clear conclusion.
