Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Viking, 2015
342 pages, hardcover

“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.”

Mim Malone is not okay. After her parent’s sudden divorce, her father’s sudden second marriage, her suddenly being whisked away from her home in Ohio to Mississippi, and the sudden discovery her mom is sick – she takes matters in her own hands and hightails it back to Ohio and her mother. Along the way she learns a lot about herself; the dark secrets of family; the sweetness of friendship found in the strangest places; and how love and connection can transcend all obstacles. First-time author David Arnold skillfully nails the rawness of the human condition experienced at an early age with humor, honesty, and compassion. This is a grand journey you should definitely have on your must-read list.
