Part mystery and part drama, this young adult classic from the righteous '70s (it was published right after Jimmy Carter took office) is weird, thrilling, surprising, provocative, and sophisticated. But the bicycling scenes are my favorite — long before fancy gears and panniers, our hero Adam treks across New England on a journey to save his life, measuring miles by junk food.

Fantastic. One of those books that definitely holds up - I read the 30th anniversary edition. Beautifully written, leaves you with lots of questions but is still very satisfying. I love books about people who are or think they are crazy.
