Destroy All Cars
A "smart and entertaining"* anti-love story from YA master Blake Nelson
James Hoff likes to rant against America's consumerist culture-the malls, the SUVs, the focus on clothes. He also likes to rant against his ex-girlfriend, Sadie, who he doesn't feel is doing enough to change the world -a bike path can't save the environment. But just like he can't avoid buying things, he also can't avoid Sadie for long. This anti-consumerist love story is all about idealism, in James's relationship with the world around him and his relationships with the people around him.
This is a fantastic, funny, sexy, cool masterpiece from one of the best YA writers working today.
