The Museum of Intangible Things

The Museum of Intangible Things - Wendy Wunder

I really like this book. So far, it is about two girls who are best friends. One of them, named Zoe, has severe bipolar disorder. Her moods go back and forth and sometimes she has "visions" of aliens. She was doing okay for awhile, but one day she goes out of control and says she is seeing the aliens again. Her best friend, Hannah, tries to take care of her and keep her from going too crazy. They come up with a sock system to help control her moods. When Zoe starts to see the aliens again, Hannah knows she has to do something. After one week, Zoe still isn't getting any better so her mom decides to commit her to the psych ward. When Zoe finds the committing papers that her mom already had signed, Se convinces Hannah to go on a road trip with her. The entire trip Zoe just keeps talking about going away, and she is teaching Hannah how to do crazy things. They are stealing, showing their boobs, sleeping in IKEA, setting free a Kermit the Frog balloon in the Macy's day parade, smoking a peace pipe, and getting into all sorts of trouble. Hannah doesn't understand what set Zoe off this time, but right now she is along for the ride. Zoe ran away and now Hannah has to find her with the help of Danny, her crush for years. I can't wait to read the ending. I hope that Hannah stops Zoe from doing whatever she has planned and that they both get back home okay. I also hope that their family lives change, especially Hannah's because her dad is an alcoholic and he stole all of the money she had saved up for college. I hope he is changed by the time she gets back!
