"For the life of him, William "Scoob" Lamar can't seem to stay out of trouble--and now the run-ins at school have led to lockdown at home. So when G'ma, Scoob's favorite person on Earth, asks him to go on an impromptu road trip, he's in the RV faster than he can say FREEDOM. With G'ma's old maps and a strange pamphlet called the 'Travelers' Green Book' at their side, the pair takes off on a journey down G'ma's memory lane. But adventure quickly turns to uncertainty: G'ma keeps changing the license plate, dodging Scoob's questions, and refusing to check Dad's voice mails. And the father they go, the more Scoob realizes that the world hasn't always been a welcoming place for kids like him, and things aren't always what they seem--G'ma included."--Jacket flap.… (més)

I enjoyed this book and how it focused on family and how important family is. ( )

This story focuses on a boy's road trip with his grandmother. They travel in an RV, and Scoob quickly learns this trip has a deeper connection to his families past. The book discusses inter-racial marriages, and what it was like to grow up in a racially segregated society.

Clean Getaway is an excellent middle grade novel that educates about history and social justice. I believe Nic Stone did an excellent job portraying the characters and putting together a concise story. This book is a travel through history following the main character, Scoob, who learns about many prominent figures such as: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ruby Bridges, another other important places and figures. He also learns about his family and the struggles of discrimination that they had to endure. This book is very fitting for a middle school classroom, and an enjoyable read. I was honestly surprised not to see this book on more reading lists than it is. ( )

"Scoob" was looking forward to his spring vacation, but his dad cancels that when Scoob gets in trouble at school. So when Scoob's grandma arrives in a brand new RV and invites Scoob to come with her on an adventure, he doesn't hesitate - he even leaves his phone behind. Soon, though, Scoob begins to wonder about G'ma, who's behaving a little strangely. She tells him little pieces of her own history and the places they're visiting as they drive west from Atlanta across Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and into Texas - where Scoob sees an Amber Alert about his own kidnapping.

Scoob's family history is woven into United States history: sundown towns and the Green Book, the Birmingham church bombing, Emmett Till's lynching, and daily experience of others' disgust, contempt, and suspicion when they see G'ma, who's white, with Scoob, who's Black (and, in the past, G'ma with Scoob's grandfather, who was also Black). Scoob learns the truth about both his grandparents, and when he's reunited with his father, Scoob's dad agrees to let him get in touch with his mother - if he wants to.

Quotes

Tonight, he'd learned more than he realized there was to know about a guy he'd always been told didn't matter. (40)

"It's possible to know TOO much about the folks in your life." (G'ma to Scoob, 77)

"Wild, ain't it? ...How easy it can be to do the wrong thing." (105)

...as much as he hates himself for it, Scoob starts to feel mad at her. (108)

"Yeah, he was gonna go to jail no matter what - back then, if you were black and accused of a crime, you were guilty whether you'd done it or not..." (194) ( )

This book took a turn at the end.
Scoob is upset with his father at the outset of the book, his spring break trip had been canceled after some trouble at school. When his G-Ma shows up asking him if he wants to go on an adventure, he grabs his (already packed) suitcase and leaves his phone behind.
As they travel, Scoob realizes that his grandma is on a mission to finish some business, a road trip she tried to take with his grandpa 50 years before. They traveled with a green book but there will still many places off limits to them, an interracial couple in the 1960s. As his G-Mas behavior grows increasingly curious, Scoob starts to wish for his dad and maybe an assist in navigating the situation. The book is told in the 3rd person, the audiobook is a good listen.
