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.
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with covers. One look at this one and there was no doubt in my mind that I had to read it. And reading the summary made me even more determined to add this to my TBR list. This one sounds like a road trip adventure that's going to involve a lot of self discovery and forgetting the hardships and inevitable downers of life at home. I'm excited to see what Zoe and Hannah discover on their adventure, and how each of the girls change by the end.
