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.
Well this book I've been wanting to read for a while, and I am not quite sure what I think about it. I want to like this book, I really do, but something about it just doesn't work for me. I can think of five or six people who would love this book but its just not for me.
I liked the plot, but its not something that I liked. Cam is dying from madd cow and he's going crazy seeing things. And then he goes on this road trip adventure with his friend who's he is sharing a room with, and a yard gnome and of course the Angel who is putting him on the right path. It is a wee bit on the out of there charts for me.
The end was predicable for me I don't want to say what it was, but it was very forshadowed, too much for my liking, and with the ending I kinda had the same feeling I had after watching Inception, why did I just waste my time with this. Another movie that this felt like a little bit was Scott Pilgrim, I know about a dozen people who like it, I just don't.
Over all the story held my interest while I was reading it, but when I wasn't it wasn't pulling me back
