Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publication: March 3rd 2015 by Viking Children's
"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.
HAPPY RELEASE DAY!! Oh my. Time flies so fast. I have never imagined this debut is great, so great! Bibliophiles have been adding Mosquitoland on their TBR shelves and have been chatting about it! I am so psyched with this book especially when where it is the first book that has been featured on my 2015 Young Adult Debut Novels blog event. I am so thankful of Sir David! I owe him a lot!
