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 🙂
