Mosquitoland by David Arnold
Mim has suffered her parent’s divorce, being moved from Ohio to Mississippi, watching her father remarry far too soon, and taking medication she doesn’t need for a psychosis she doesn’t have. But when she overhears her new stepmother say her mother is sick, Mim realizes she can’t take one more thing. Armed with a journal, a coffee can full of (stolen) money, and her sarcastic wit, Mim sets out for a thousand mile journey to find her mom. Along the way she will make and lose friends, battle enemies, and discover a lot more about herself than she thought possible.
Recommended for high school and up.
