Staff Reviews

The mother of all teen road trips - Cameron is dying and sets out to understand how to live. Sarcastic, surreal and at times profound, GOING BOVINE is filled with crazy characters, kooky situations and not a little weed. Super fun read.

“Libba Bray's narrative of the surreal adventures of 16-year-old Cameron, recently diagnosed with mad cow disease, will take you everywhere -- from his pain-ridden hospital bed, to a happiness cult, to the Party House in Florida. Going Bovine is a great read for anyone ready for an adventure.”
— Cassie Denton, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA


For use in schools and libraries only. Cameron, a teenage slacker, finds his dysfunctional family reunites when he is diagnosed with mad cow disease.
