Cameron and his twin are totally different. She is popular and pretty much the perfect teen. Cameron on the other hand gets bad grades, isn't a good student, and oh yeah, he's dying. The hallucinations he's been having are side affects of mad cow disease. Now Cameron is on a mission to save the himself and the world. Cameron, the angel Dulcie, his friend Gonzo, and a yard gnome he sets out on a journey to find the universe traveling doctor that holds the solution. With a lot of detours on the side, Cameron has a whole lot of problems.

Going Bovine was hilarious. Cameron was pretty much the perfect main character. He was hilarious, and outspoken. This book got me hooked.

The whole crazy plot was amazingly crafted. I have to give props to Libba Bray for coming up with such an original piece of work. Even though the character were so obviously fake they felt so real! The situations that they are brought into were so funny. Sometimes I had to wonder if the characters were being serious or not.

Overall I would say that Going Bovine is unlike anything you've read before. In it you'll find the most outrageous road trip in the world.
