The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder

A crisp, beautifully crafted story of adventure, love, and the limits of friendship Booklist (Starred Review) Hannah and Zoe haven t had much in their lives, but they ve always had each other. So when Zoe tells Hannah she needs to get out of their down-and-out New Jersey town, they pile into Hannah s beat-up old Le Mans and head west, putting everything their deadbeat parents, their disappointing love lives, their inevitable enrollment at community college behind them. As they chase storms and make new friends, Zoe tells Hannah she wants her to live bigger, dream grander, aim higher. And so Zoe begins teaching Hannah all about life s intangible things, concepts sadly missing from her existence things like audacity, insouciance, karma, and even happiness.


A crisp, beautifully crafted story of adventure, love, and the limits of friendship


Publishers Weekly

Hannah s fluid narration will keep the pages turning until the novel s complex and bittersweet conclusion.

Zoe is a complex character who in addition to being bipolar is also intelligent, loyal, and funny. Tragically, however, it s Zoe s illness that brings this outstanding novel and an inspiring friendship to a heartbreaking but inevitable conclusion.

Nobody writes true, messy, gorgeous friendship like Wendy Wunder. The Museum of Intangible Things is wrenching and real. --Katie Cotugno, author of How to Love
