“Libba Bray's narrative of the surreal adventures of 16-year-old Cameron, recently diagnosed with mad cow disease, will take you everywhere -- from his pain-ridden hospital bed, to a happiness cult, to the Party House in Florida. Going Bovine is a great read for anyone ready for an adventure.”

Description


"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.
