Loyalty. Envy. Obligation. Dreams. Disappointment. Fear. Negligence. Coping. Elation. Lust. Nature. Freedom. Heartbreak. Insouciance. Audacity. Gluttony. Belief. God. Karma. Knowing what you want (There is probably a French word for it). Saying Yes. Destiny. Truth. Devotion. Forgiveness. Life. Happiness (ever after).

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 more for her. 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.

An unforgettable read from the acclaimed author of The Probability of Miracles, The Museum of Intangible Things sparkles with the humor and heartbreak of true friendship and first love.

One of the wonderful perks about growing older is I find I’m more comfortable with myself and more knowledgeable about what works for me. Because of that, I’m increasing able to pinpoint books that I can say with some confidence I know I’ll enjoy. The Museum of Intangible Things is definitely one such novel. There are few things I love reading about more than journeys of self discovery, and I love that this novel seems to focus on the friendship between the two girls as opposed to romance. While I’m not opposed to the inclusion of romance in some capacity, I do wish more novels would focus on female friendship and this novel certainly promises to do just that. I have very high hopes for this one! Because it’s set to be released only a couple of weeks before my birthday, it also feels a little like kismet 🙂

    First of all, that cover!!! It’s seriously one of the prettiest covers out there; I am so in love! Secondly, I wholeheartedly agree with you. This book sounds amazing, and I do think that there needs to be more books about female friendships. Fabulous pick this week, Jen!

    Some people ask me why I never seem to have books with low ratings and I think it’s because I know which books I will like, and those are the ones I pick up. This one does seem like something I’d enjoy. I can’t wait until it’s released!

    I agree that YA novels should focus more on friendships. It’s one of the most important aspects of being a young adult, even more important than romance, in my opinion. I love books that are able to put friendships in such beautiful way.

    Oh, and when is your birthday? 😉

    The cover is what initially drew me to this novel but it sounds so good too. My favorite YA books are the ones that focus on friendship rather than just romance.

    Nothing new, but I ADORE this cover! And the title too! It has a strange “something” in it that I want to discover. The story looks like something I’d also really like to read! Have to try it when it’s released.
