Synopsis:
Can Cameron find what he’s looking for?

All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.

Mom teaches English comp, single-celled organism level, at the community college.  She could be teaching a challenging English lit class somewhere good, but she never finished her dissertation or whatever it is that you need to become a bone fide PhD.  Mom has trouble finishing stuff.  The house is crowded with half-scribbed-in crossword puzzles, books with bookmarks in the middle, bags of knitting, scarves she got halfway through and then abandoned.
