Publisher Description

Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties, delivers another darkly hilarious, heartbreaking coming-of-age novel with The 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.

The Wonder Bread Summer

A lot of action, a bit of interest with the Chinese Proverbs -- but mostly fluff

Hclegs ,

A Fun Read

Funny, fast-paced, and entertaining. My favorite Jessica Anya Blau book yet.

Vickie Fang ,

An Exhilarating Read.

This is the best of Blau's novels -- and that's saying a lot. Fast paced, funny, and very sensory, it tells the story of a young woman on a wild adventure. It's the kind of action story that is usually reserved for male characters, but Blau proves that she can pull it off with a female lead expertly. The resolution is enormously satisfying, and it's impossible not to care about the characters.
