Title: The Museum of Intangible Things
Author: Wendy Wunder
Publication Date: April 10, 2014
Synopsis: Loyalty. Envy. Obligation. Dreams. Disappointment. Fear. Negligence. Coping. Elation. Lust. Nature. Freedom. Heartbreak. Insouciance. Audacity. Gluttony. Belief. God. Karma. Knowing what you want (there is probably a French word for it). Saying Yes. Destiny. Truth. Devotion. Forgiveness. Life. Happiness (ever after).
Hannah and Zoe haven’t had much in their lives, but they’ve always had each other. So when Zoe tells Hannah she needs to get out of their down-and-out New Jersey town, they pile into Hannah’s beat-up old Le Mans and head west, putting everything—their deadbeat parents, their disappointing love lives, their inevitable enrollment at community college—behind them.
As they chase storms and make new friends, Zoe tells Hannah she wants more for her. She wants her to live bigger, dream grander, aim higher. And so Zoe begins teaching Hannah all about life’s intangible things, concepts sadly missing from her existence—things like audacity,insouciance, karma, and even happiness.
An unforgettable read from the acclaimed author of The Probability of Miracles, The Museum of Intangible Things sparkles with the humor and heartbreak of true friendship and first love.
Why I'm Waiting
I am so excited that Wendy Wunder finally has a new book coming out! I read her first book, The Probability of Miracles, back in 2012 and was instantly in love with it and with her. Needless to say, I've been waiting a long time for this one.
The entire plot of the book is interesting, too. I'm loving the whole road trip/traveling genre that's been around lately. It helps me with my whole dreams of wanderlust. Plus, it's a story about two girl best friends. There definitely aren't enough books that focus on friendships between girls. Right now, I think that's what the world needs.
Plus, from the reviews that I've read so far, it looks like the book is much deeper than just a simple road trip story. Wunder is great at tackling bigger issues, so I'm excited to see what she does with this!
