“C’mon Smith. Time to get up and get out of here. Be a fighter. Or a runner! Like at a track meet, except if we lose we might die.”

Okay, so no one’s gonna be hiring me to give motivational speeches anytime soon. (41% eARC, Kindle)


Smith and I celebrate recapturing the dogs by spraying each other with my uncles’ hose. I even bring down some shampoo and soap and we get all sudsy right there in the front yard. This is followed by an awkward trip to the bathroom that involves humming and closed eyes. (45% eARC, Kindle)

This book is weird, and chaotic, and pretty darn hilarious! I lovin’ Lennie and Smith, and all the craziness that is happening!
