Review: As Easy as Falling off the Face of the Earth (Perkins)

Title: As Easy as Falling of the Face of the Earth
Author: Perkins
Genre: Fiction, Adventure
Pages: 368
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

While on the way to summer camp, 16-year-old Ry opens a letter informing him that camp has been canceled because "a statistically improbable number of things have gone wrong." He hops off the train in Montana to figure out what to do, and the train moves on without him (but with all his stuff). He is alone in the middle of nowhere with a dying cell phone. And his wild and crazy journey begins!

One reviewer called this book "a long, immensely enjoyable, curiously comforting ramble through an absurd world." I was trying to find a way to describe this book myself, but I think that I can't do it any better than that.
