Mosquitoland
by David Arnold

Mim is affected by mental illness. Whether she’s diagnosable herself is debatable, but dad still fears she’ll become her Aunt Isabel. After her parents’ divorce, she’s forced to give up the Ohio good life and move to Mississippi (Mosquitoland itself) with her dad and stepmom. But when she discovers that the mom she left behind needs help, Mim decides to make her way back to her home state alone.

Mim’s razor-sharp wit and corny humor shine in this story told through her interactions with the people she meets on the road and the letters she writes to Isabel. Funny and poignant, quiet and exciting, Mosquitoland will appeal to fans of John Corey Whaley’s Where Things Come Back and Jeff Zentner’s The Serpent King
