Arnold, D. (2015). Mosquitoland. New York: Viking Children’s.
Mosquitoland is a witty, adventurous book about a sixteen year old girl named Mim whose parents are divorced. After learning that her mom is sick, she hops on a bus and takes on a 947 mile long road trip from “Mosquitoland”, Mississippi to Cleveland, Ohio. Along the way Mim meets a cast of characters ranging from best friends to bus drivers and she gathers experiences from bus accidents to dealing with her parents’ divorce to a new stepmom. Overall it is a wonderful story about a person trying to deal with a difficult time of her life.
Three out of five stars. Solid sauce. 😀
