The Museum of Intangible Things
The Museum of Intangible Things
Wendy Wunder
Print Length: 304 pages
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: April 10, 2014

Loyalty. Envy. Obligation. Dreams. Disappointment. Fear. Negligence. Coping. Elation. Lust. Nature. Freedom. Heartbreak. Insouciance. Audacity. Gluttony. Belief. God. Karma. Knowing what you want (there is probably a French word for it). Saying Yes. Destiny. Truth. Devotion. Forgiveness. Life. Happiness (ever after).

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.


Why I HATE Waiting!


The cover and title is what initially drew me into The Museum of Intangible Things. After reading the synopsis I knew I wanted to read this contemporary about growing up and real friendship.

My BFF and I had grand dreams of taking a crazy road trip after graduation… Though we have had many adventures since finishing school we never did take that crazy road trip. I can’t wait to read how Zoe and Hannah fair on their trip!

Is The Museum of Intangible Things on your to read list?
Can’t wait to see what books you are wanting this week?
