I have not read a book by Sara Zarr that I did not love!

Goodbye From Nowhere is a story of a maladjusted family who can't seem to make decisions on what is best for all.
It is a story of two cousins who rely on each other and wish they lived closer to each other so they could live life and forget about all the family drama.
It's about a selfish parent who is making her family live a life so out of the norm and how it is affecting everyone.

It's a must read!

Interesting to read a Zarr with a male protagonist! This book though left me lukewarm. There was a very close relationship with the cousin that bordered on a little incestuous, but the rest of the story was compelling.
