In Going Bovine by Libba Bray, Cameron, a 16 year old slacker gets rudely jolted out of his going-nowhere life by a shocking diagnosis. He has mad cow disease. A gorgeous punk rock angel with pink hair convinces Cameron that he must go on a quest to save the world and in the process find a cure for himself. With Gonzo, a neurotic dwarf, and Balder, a Norse god trapped in the body of a garden gnome, by his side, Cameron sets out on a crazy road trip. Along the way he is attacked by fire giants, narrowly escapes the clutches of an evil happiness cult, and takes part in a near-lethal reality t.v. show contest. It’s an amazing ride - or is it all in Cameron’s mind, a symptom of his illness? Either way, this dark comedy is a kick!
