Book Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

I love road trip books, and this was a very unexpected one.

Mosquitoland is funny,smart and inspiring, one book I’ll never forget.

I have no words to describe how amazing and beautiful this book is. At the beginning I felt lost and felt like this was a very weird book. Mary Iris Malone is the star of this story and she has a very unique way of seeing the world. As I kept reading and began to understand and know more about Mim I started to find things in common with her. I began to love her and feel a connection to her. When I was a teen I found myself in a place where I didn’t seem to fit and I always felt like an outcast in my own house, school, town, country and world. It was hard to find people who would connect to me as I wanted to be connected with and I found myself being like Mim, trying to figure out how to survive in a world who doesn’t get you.

I like the way David Arnold writes. He’s very straight to point and hit us with truths that are rarely seen in YA characters. I recommend this book to people of all ages, it’s very mature, deep and inspiring . I am so happy I finally got my chance to read it and enjoy it as much as I expected.

The ending really surprised me and made want to read the book all over again. Is that kind of book where the ending makes so much sense that you have to read at least the first pages again. This is such an inspiring book and I can’t finish my review without sharing my favorite quotes.



I would love to see this book made into a movie, it’s one of those story that deserves to be shared with the world. I can’t also wait foe David Arnold’s next book.


  1. It’s nominated in Goodreads for best YA book or something similar I think. Apparently has lots of good reviews so I must read it! Reminds me of John Green style which to be honest apart from TFIOS is not so great but I’ll give it a try 🙂
