What I'm currently waiting for...

SUMMARY

"I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange." 

After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the "wastelands" of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.

So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane. 

Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, "Mosquitoland" is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.


Why I'm waiting on MOSQUITOLAND...

Oh my, where to start...

First - my heart already aches for this main character, Mim. 

Second - ROADTRIP!!!

And last - I already feel like I'm going to need some tissues for Mim's story. I'm hoping that she gets some sort of 'closure' at the end. 

Cannot wait to read this one and feel all the feels!!!!!


SO, what are you waiting for???
