I just absolutely had to post about this book. I haven't had the opportunity to get my hands on a copy yet, but I have had the honor of hearing Libba read the first chapter. I got to meet her in May at a book event in Madison, CT for her earlier series, The Gemma Doyle trilogy. I couldn't stop laughing after the first few sentences.
"The best day of my life happened when I was five and almost died at Disney World. I’m sixteen now, so you can imagine that’s left me with quite a few days of majorGoing Bovine is about a teenage boy, Cameron, who finds out he has the human version of Mad Cow. He goes on an amazing adventure with a dwarf, lawn gnome, and an angel to find a cure.
From what I have had the opportunity to hear, I think any teen or adult (male or female) can get a kick out of this. I know both my boyfriend and I are looking forward to reading it. I can't wait to get a copy!
You can read an excerpt of the first chapter of this book here. If you are not rolling on the floor laughing by the time you reach the end - then nothing will make you laugh!
Here is the book trailer for Going Bovine. You will get a real treat in Libba's personality!
