"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.

***Note: this review assumes that you've read the book.*** One-sentence summary: The wonderfully distinctive voice of the main character, the well-crafted sentences, and the irresistible road trip were (for me) unfortunately overshadowed by some ableist, racist passages and a you're-not-supposed-t...

I listened to this novel and I don’t think I enjoyed the audio as well as I would have liked to actually read the book. The flashbacks in the novel and some of dramatic parts in the book just weren’t played out as well as I thought they could have been. Mim, her innocence had me laughing and I saw...
