About the Book

The Wonder Bread Summer

by Jessica Anya Blau


Jessica Anya Blau, author of THE SUMMER OF NAKED SWIM PARTIES, delivers another darkly hilarious, heartbreaking coming-of-age novel with WONDER BREAD SUMMER.

In THE WONDER BREAD SUMMER, loosely based on ALICE IN WONDERLAND, 20-year-old Allie Dodgson has adventures that rival those Alice had down the rabbit hole. Or those of Weeds’ Nancy Botwin.

Allison is working at a dress shop to help pay for college. The dress shop turns out to be a front for drug dealers. And Allison ends up on the run --- with a Wonder Bread bag full of cocaine.

With a hit man after her, Allison wants the help of her parents. But there’s a problem: Her mom took off when Allison was eight; her dad moves so often Allison that doesn’t even have his phone number…

Set in 1980s California, THE WONDER BREAD SUMMER is a wickedly funny and fresh caper that’s sure to please fans of Christopher Moore, Carl Hiaasen, and Marcy Dermansky.
