Sorry for my absence. Mr three-year old Fergus broke his leg last Tuesday and things have been crazy!
I love the muted colours on the cover of this book. Mrs Bichan always tells me off, but I do judge a book by its cover (!).
This is a road trip novel about Mim Malone finding herself as she travels across America.
Her family collapses and changes and she is forced to go and live with her dad and new step-mom. Once she arrives she learns her mom is sick... back in Cleveland.
Mim hops on a bus and goes. Along the way she meets some very crazy and quirky people. Best of all though, is that we get to learn more about Mim as she confronts her own demons, figure out what love really is, and actually what it means to be a sane person.
I love these type of road trip novels where we learn so much about the protagonist along the way.
Currently this book is 3.98 on Goodreads.
Oops, turns out Mrs Bichan reviewed this book already here http://camhigh.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/mosquitoland.html but it somehow ended up in my review pile. Sorry about that!
