Description

Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties, delivers another darkly hilarious, heartbreaking coming-of-age novel with Wonder Bread Summer.In The Wonder Bread Summer, loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, 20-year-old Allie Dodgson has adventures that rival those Alice had down the rabbit hole. Or those of Weeds' Nancy Botwin.Allison is working at a dress shop to help pay for college. The dress shop turns out to be a front for drug dealers. And Allison ends up on the run—with a Wonder Bread bag full of cocaine. With a hit man after her, Allison wants the help of her parents. But there's a problem: Her mom took off when Allison was eight; her dad moves so often Allison that doesn't even have his phone number….Set in 1980s California, The Wonder Bread Summer is a wickedly funny and fresh caper that's sure to please fans of Christopher Moore, Carl Hiaasen, and Marcy Dermansky.
