Praise
"Some teens may check out before Cameron makes it to his final destination, but many will enjoy asking themselves the questions both deep and shallow that pop up along the way."
"Fans of the author's previous works will not be disappointed, and it may appeal to science-fiction and fantasy fans with a taste for dry humor as well."
"[H]ilarious and hallucinatory....Despite the novel's length, Bray doesn't waste a sentence....[She] not only breaks the mold of the ubiquitous dying-teenager genre--she smashes it and grinds the tiny pieces into the sidewalk. For the record, I'd go anywhere she wanted to take me."
From the Publisher
Annotation With a madcap road trip, cults, and one very appealing punk angel, bestselling young adult author Libba Bray has created a different world from the one in the Gemma Doyle trilogy. At 16, Cameron is a classic underachiever, bitter and sarcastic with humorous edges, intent on not making too much effort in school or anywhere else. When Cameron finds out that he has mad cow disease and is likely to die, things take a bizarre turn. Goaded on to find a cure by Dulcie, an angel with a sweet tooth, Carmon sets off on a road trip with a video-game-playing dwarf and a yard gnome who could be a god. Whether he's hallucinating or not, Cameron is in for the adventure of his life. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
Editors Note Can Cameron find what he’s looking for?All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.From the Hardcover edition.
