Lisa Reviews: Wendy Wunder’s – “The Museum of Intangible Things”


wunder_museumLooking at the cover of The Museum of Intangible Things, you would assume right away that this book is perfect for the summer and that it completely revolves around friendship. And it does! But there is so much more going on in this book than the cover and the synopsis show.

The story follows two best friends, Hannah and Zoe. They couldn’t be any more different, but are still ultimate friends. While Hannah is sensible, trying to earn her college education through selling hot dogs, Zoe is spontaneous and wild.

Life is boring in their small hometown in New Jersey, and the two have always talked about going on a road trip together. But neither of them knew just what would happen on this seemingly harmless vacation: hiding and spending the night in IKEA, flashing cowboys on the highway, and wanting to see a real buffalo!

Hannah doesn’t expect what happens next, and she has no idea what to do…after all, Zoe is her best friend.

The Museum of Intangible Things was filled to the brim with emotions! When I picked this book up, I had no idea just what I was getting myself into. But Hannah and Zoe go through a true test of friendship.

Overall, I LOVED IT! But I don’t recommend reading it out in public with a full face of make-up on, unless you like looking like a raccoon with the mascara running down your cheeks. I would say to read this one at home!

Besides the two best friends, who I could really relate to, there was also a boy involved and a little romance. Going into this book, I was hoping for and even expecting some romance. But in the end I’m glad that this wasn’t the book’s main focus. I like that it truly revolved around these two girls!

The ending was heartbreaking, but OH SO GOOD! I recommend this book to anyone who needs a good cry.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect based on the book jacket but the book is so much more! The author is very funny and witty but what I most enjoyed is how she captured the dialogue of these high school aged characters so well. There were other secondary relationships to follow – Hannah and her father, Hannah and Danny, etc. which I also really liked. Overall a beautiful story of friendship and sisterly love. Loved it.

      ALL that and the entire emotional aspect! After reading the book I was surprised that the author didn’t include or hint at what might happen to the two girls. I think we would be seeing a lot more people picking this book up if she did.

      Thank you so much for your comment! You’re AWESOME!

    Hannah and Zoe are perfect friends, struggling through life on the way to becoming adults. Wunder has done it again with her beautiful moments for her characters, interwoven with her snarky sense of humor. If you liked Probability of Miracles, don’t wait to read this book!
