MOSQUITOLAND DAVID ARNOLD

1 girl

1000 miles

The journey of a lifetime.

Heartwarming, Heartbreaking and hilarious.

When her parents unexpectedly divorce, Mim Malone is dragged from her beloved home in Ohio to the ‘wastelands’ of Mississippi, where she lives in a haze of medication with her dad and new (almost certainly evil) stepmom.
But when Mim learns her real mother is ill back home, she escapes her new life and embarks on a rescue mission aboard a Greyhound bus, meeting an assortment of quirky characters along the way. And 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.
MY REVIEW
There is no shortage of humor in this story. David Arnold write stories and songs. For a first novel this holds at times a heartbreaking story with great power. Mary Iris Malone is better known as Mim, is dragged from her home in Ohio to Mississippi, where she lives with her dad and her new stepmom. But when she learns that her mother is sick she takes the bus back to Cleveland.  Mosquitoland is a story of love and loyalty.
