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.
I read this book and thought it was awesome, but I'm thinking that I couldn't sit there for that long listening to Cameron have that voice. Totally not a good reader, in my opinion. But the book is really great. I'd recommend reading it though.
Very interesting book, but the reading is strange.
