A weird, wacky ode to Don Quixote (free Kindle version). I might go so far as to call it a modern retelling, but I haven’t read Don Quixote book in so long that I’m not quite sure about that. For those who don’t know already, Going Bovine is about an apathetic 16-year-old boy named Cameron who suddenly finds himself with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the human form of mad cow disease) and ends up taking a long journey with a dwarf, a fairy, and a garden gnome to find the rogue physicist who might be able to cure him. The book reads like a really strange, really random dream and you’ll find yourself questioning what is real and what isn’t (but in a good way!). The book has a few preachy dystopian-esque chapters here and there, but for the most part, I absolutely loved this book.
