The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai
The story follows a young boy, Ian Drake, and the librarian, Lucy Hull, he kidnaps. On a crazy road trip they go, encountering such things as ferrets, a crazy boyfriend, the Australian national anthem, and numerous members of the local Russian mafia.
I really enjoyed this book and I could hardly put it down. PG for some suggestive theme including talk of gays and trying to change their orientation. I would recommend it for those who like realistic fiction and comedy.
