Published March 3rd 2015

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.

It took me a little bit to get into this book but when I did, I fell in love with the characters so much. Mim was so original and different and everyone else was just as interesting. The writing style is insanely awesome and I can’t wait to read more books from this author. The overall road trip aspect was fairly unrealistic but I didn’t think that was a big deal. I was so engaged in the characters and I loved the story.
Overall, I loved this book. I was so sad when I finished it because I wanted to keep reading. Mosquitoland is everything I look for in a book and I highly recommend it.
