Wow! What a wild ride! Beautiful and sad.
Cameron is leading a boring teenage life; doesn't really fit in and doesn't really seem to care. He's mostly just going through the motions of life without really thinking about what matters to him or what his future holds.
Then, after having halucinations, he's diagnosed with Mad Cow Disease and that's when things get interesting. The pieces of his memories, random thoughts from his life are scrambled with physics and philosophy, reality and alternate universes as he goes on a journey of self discovery. He learns about love, sex, friendship and what it means to really live.
Cameron's wonderfully sarcastic voice is funny and honest. This book made me laugh and cry, occasionally at the same time.

This is one not to miss. Superior storytelling.
