Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties, delivers another darkly hilarious, heartbreaking coming-of-age novel with Wonder Bread Summer.
In The Wonder Bread Summer, loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, 20-year-old Allie Dodgson has adventures that rival those Alice had down the rabbit hole. Or those of Weeds’ Nancy Botwin.
Allison is working at a dress shop to help pay for college. The dress shop turns out to be a front for drug dealers. And Allison ends up on the run—with a Wonder Bread bag full of cocaine.
With a hit man after her, Allison wants the help of her parents. But there’s a problem: Her mom took off when Allison was eight; her dad moves so often Allison that doesn’t even have his phone number….
Set in 1980s California, The Wonder Bread Summer is a wickedly funny and fresh caper that’s sure to please fans of Christopher Moore, Carl Hiaasen, and Marcy Dermansky.

I've was so excited for this book to come out because I loved Drinking Closer to Home and The Summer of Naked Swim Parties. This book was one of the most stupidest stories I ever read. I kept on reading in hopes it would get better, it never did.
Wish I could get my money back.
An Exhilarating Read.
This is the best of Blau's novels -- and that's saying a lot. Fast paced, funny, and very sensory, it tells the story of a young woman on a wild adventure. It's the kind of action story that is usually reserved for male characters, but Blau proves that she can pull it off with a female lead expertly. The resolution is enormously satisfying, and it's impossible not to care about the characters.
Wonder bored summer
Don't buy this book. It really is not well written. In fact, it's a bore.
