Rev and Dylan run into each other twenty years after Teachers'College. Rev is on her way to Montreal to see the fireworks and, since Dylan has nothing else to do, he decides to go along for the ride. What follows is a lot of talk about life, feminism, politics, religion, and the nature of cats as well as the consumption of copious amounts of weed and junk food. All of this sounds kinda boring but, really, it wasn't. It was fun and funny and it's definitely the kind of book that makes you think. It also gave me my new favourite Biblical quote, Psalm 137:9. It can really liven up a conversation.
Anyway, if you're looking for adventure, romance, or mystery you might want to skip this book but if you just want a fun read that'll make you think long after you finish the last page, definitely give this one a try.
